Frank Duveneck was an accomplished realism portrait painter in the late 19th century. Although born in Covington, Kentucky, his talents were unappreciated across the Ohio River in Cincinnati. Then he became heralded in Europe. One of his most famous paintings is, “The Cobbler’s Apprentice.” The art was created in Germany and now hangs in the local Taft Museum of Art. This mural is a playful rendition of the master’s work. The boy is now holding a baseball bat in recognition of the Cincinnati Reds who play nearby. The lead artist for this mural was Tim Parsley from ArtWorks.
