OIL PAINTING:  The Florentine Girl, 1887

      In 1879, Duveneck decided to relocate to Florence, Italy, where his student and later wife, Elizabeth Booth, lived. Many of his students, then known as "Duveneck Boys," followed him to Italy. Frank Duveneck's style changed dramatically, with dark street urchins replaced by sweet girls in bright sunlight - The Florentine Girl, Girl with Rake. With Duveneck's broad, vivacious brushstrokes more carefully blended and edited, the paintings of this period lack the masculine force and exuberance of his best paintings.
