Frank V. Dudley

Born in 1868, Frank Dudley lived until 1957. He was a member of the Palette and Chisel within its first decade; Dudley is listed as an active member on a 1906 roster of the club (back in the days when the club was located in the Athenaeum Building on the 7th Floor, the one-time studio of Lorado Taft.

Dudley is probably best known for his paintings of the Indiana Dunes. This fall there will be an exhibition of his work at the Valparaiso University museum, the Brauer Museum of Art. There is an excellent article about him in the July-August 2006 issue of American Art Review (pdf format).
