About the artist: Charles William DuVall (American 1864 – 1965) was born near Gallipolis, Ohio. Duvall’s family moved to Columbus, Ohio in 1889. He studied art for ten years with Edward Parker Hayden before touring the art centers of Europe and returning to settle in Columbus. There he spent the remainder of his life teaching and painting. Of his profession DuVall wrote: “Art is an expression of life.” He also said, “Teaching makes a student out of the teacher. Once you begin to teach, you soon realize how much that you, as well as the student, have to learn.” Other advice: “Be a student all your life. See life, study life, try to interpret the vitality of life.” DuVall maintained a studio at 101 N. High Street in Columbus where he painted and taught until a few months before his death on February 21, 1966 at the age of 101. His work is in the permanent collection of the Columbus Museum of Art.
