Polling Landscape

Frank Duveneck (American, 1848-1919)


Duveneck opened a school in Polling, Bavaria where he trained Americans who became known as the “Duveneck Boys.”

Polling Landscape exhibits principles of the Munich Academy’s teaching and the French Barbizon artists—strong brushwork, the manipulation of dark tonalities, and a sketch-like quality.
