Online Event: “The American ‘Boys’ in Venice”
September 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Since the 18th century, Venice has served as a source of inspiration for artists seeking to capture its watery vistas, historic architecture, and exotic inhabitants. Kristin Spangenberg, Curator of Prints at the Cincinnati Art Museum, will explore the prints Frank Duveneck and his students created in Venice during the 1880s. The Cincinnati Art Museum through a gift from Duveneck became a repository for many of these prints.
Frank Duveneck (1848-1919) was one of the most influential painters of the Gilded Age, but he was also an accomplished printmaker and an active member of the Etching Revival. Duveneck’s early etchings and those of his students coincide with their interaction with the American expatriate James Abbott McNeill Whistler.
This presentation is being offered in connection with CAM’s recent Duveneck exhibition and the publication of Frank Duveneck: American Master.
