Unsuspected Genius: The Art and Life of Frank Duveneck
Author: Robert Neuhaus
Publication: Bedford Press, 1987
Robert Neuhaus’s Unsuspected Genius delivers a strong reappraisal of Frank Duveneck’s extraordinarily varied career. Beginning with the artist’s fortunate 1870 migration from Covington, Kentucky to Munich, Germany, Neuhaus explores a twenty-year European sojourn, and a subsequent thirty years in America, in which Duveneck’s palette, technique, and content would go through a compelling variety of transformations.
