your DufnerNancy Turk
I copied microfich from the Smithsonian a couple weeks ago because I also own a Dufner and was trying to prove provenance. 26 pages of two live interviews and he talks in detail about his paintings and his life. I enjoyed every word. You may want to order this through your local library as I did. You would not regret it. He even answers the Whistler study question and has some comments about Whistler too.
Edward DufnerBill Fernald
I have an original Dufner
painting and I think it is the one he won the Albright scholorship and went to New york for further study. I also believe the painting is of his first wife but
that is my guess. Is anyone out there that could give me more info.
I can email a photo. It is inscribed on the back
"Given to me by Edward Dufner" and dated 1893.
