A Living Master - Robert Liberace coming to Kline Academy

Rob Liberace's work is inspired by centuries of knowledge and skill exemplified by the great masters. He strives to combine his fascination with anatomy, art history and technique to produce work in a variety of disciplines including drawing, watercolor, painting and sculpture. Robert received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. from George Washington University with art scholarships from the National Society of Arts and Letters.

Rob is perhaps best known for the movement and draftsmanship of his figure work. He has been selected as a "Living Master" by the Art Renewal Center and is an honorary member of the American China Oil Painting Artists League. He has participated in their shows in New York and Bejing.

In April 2003 Robert received the Portrait Society of America's Grand Prize Award in their annual International Portrait Competition. The previous year he placed Best of Show. Another of his portraits graced the cover of The Artist's magazine in April 2007. Robert has been commissioned to paint portraits for clients such as Marc Pachter, long-time Director of the National Portrait Gallery, George H. Bush, and Ambassador Sol Linowitz. Rob's portrait demonstrations have become a favorite for students attending the Portrait Societies' Portrait Academies where he has been a regular member of the faculty for over a decade.

We are honored to host one most sought-after
artists and instructors in the world...
