A portrait by Frank Duveneck of his adoptive father, it is titled Squire Duveneck.

Henry Wichmann and Joseph Duveneck, the adoptive father of famed artist Frank Duveneck, bought the Hone Brewery from Frank Hone. The brewery was situated at the northeast corner of 12th and Stevens, in Covington, Kentucky, and had it's own beer garden in an adjacent lot. By 1866, the brewery was no longer in operation. After his brewery closed, Duveneck remained a prominent member of society, eventually becoming known as "Squire" Duveneck.
