Tyroler
Tyroler
Frank Duveneck (1848-1919) was one of the earliest significant American proponents of the artistic movement called Realism. Drawn to this new style as it was emerging there, he studied in Munich, Germany in the 1870s and 1880s where he adapted the chiaroscuro and character study of painters like Frans Hals into his own style. Typical works from this period of his life like "Tyroler" show a strongly modeled face or form emerging from a shadowy often incomplete background. After a period in Italy during which his work became sunnier in both palette and mood, he returned to the U.S. where he became an influential teacher.
