Robert Liberace is an American Artist.


Perhaps best known for the movement and draftsmanship of his figure work, Rob was inspired as a child by an old copy of Hogarth’s Dynamic Figure Drawing.  His interests in drawing blossomed. He pursued his dream and earned art scholarships from the Morris Louis Foundation, The National Academy of Arts and Letters, and The Knights of Columbus. These, along with a baseball scholarship, aided him in earning BFA and MFA degrees from George Washington University in Washington DC. He has since combined his fascination with anatomy, art history, and technique to 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 international competition with his painting “Spartan.” He received their “Collections Magazine” Award in 2017, and in 2016 his painting “5th Circle” took First Place in the Imaginative Realism category. In April 2003 Rob received the Grand Prize in the annual International Portrait Competition for the Portrait Society of America. Now on their Advisory Board, he regularly teaches and demos at portrait conferences and helps judge the annual competition. Rob is an honorary member of the American-China Oil Painting Artists League and a visiting instructor at The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, demonstrating old masters’ techniques.
