Robert Liberace

Perhaps best known for the movement and draftsmanship of his figure work, Robert Liberace combines his fascination with anatomy, art history, and technique to teach and produce work in a variety of disciplines including drawing, watercolor, painting, and sculpture.

Rob has been selected as a “Living Master” by the Art Renewal Center where he won the Grand Prize in their 2020 worldwide competition with his painting “Spartan.” In 2016 his painting “5th Circle” took First Place in the Imaginative Realism category. In April 2003 Rob received the Grand Prize in the Portrait Society of America’s annual International Portrait Competition. Now on their Advisory Board, he regularly teaches and demos at portrait conferences and assists in judging the annual competition. Rob is a visiting instructor at The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, demonstrating old masters’ techniques.

A laser etched copy of his painting “Spartan” is on the moon in perpetuity through the Lunar Codex Project/Art Renewal Center and his artwork has been highlighted in The Artist’s Magazine, American Artist magazine, International Artist, American Art Collector, England’s The Artist, and China’s Collections magazine. 

Rob is well known for his inspiring and informative teaching style. He holds workshops and museum history tours throughout the United States and Europe. He received his BFA and MFA at George Washington University with scholarships from art and baseball. He and his wife, artist Lina Liberace have two daughters, also artists.
