Munich school of painting

DEFINITION

Name given to a style innovated by American artists in Munich in the 1870s and 1880s, most of them students of Frank Duveneck. The style was realism combined with "dashing brushwork of quickly applied blocks of color, omitting the careful blending of traditional methods. Young boys or older men from working class neighborhoods were among the artists' favorite subjects." The style is credited with being a major influence in overthrowing the Hudson River School style of painting. Source: Traditional Fine Arts Online, http://www.tfaoi.com/newsm1/n1m235.htm
