About this title


Traces the life of the neglected American artist, shows a selection of his portraits, landscapes, and nudes, and reassesses his place in modern art

From Library Journal:

Duveneck (1848-1919), most famous for his "vigorous brushwork and bravura technique," received high praise as a portrait and landscape painter, etcher, and teacher, yet his reputation suffered greatly after his death. Some prominent American critics considered him little more than an able technician. Also, a number of his dark, opaque paintings proved physically unstable. Neuhaus weighs the artist's strengths and limitations and presents a more balanced view. The volume's format allows for the comfortable arrangement of the text, 53 black-and-white illustrations, 45 handsome color plates, and research aids. Recommended for American art history collections. Kathleen Eagen Johnson, Sleepy Hollow Restorations, Tarrytown, N.Y.
