Robert Liberace (Sculptor & Artist)

Master Artist – Robert Liberace is equally accomplished in drawing, painting, and sculpture.

His work is inspired by the centuries of knowledge, skill, and elegance of the old masters. He works in a variety of mediums including pencil, chalk, pen and ink, watercolor, and oil. In the February 2006 issue of The Artists’ Magazine Rob was selected as one of the top 20 artists under the age of forty.

FIGURES Rob is perhaps best known for his classic and distinctive style of figure drawing and painting. American Artist magazine highlighted Rob’s drawing techniques as the cover feature in their May 2002 annual drawing issue and American Art Collector magazine published an article on his figure painting in their March 2010 issue. Three of Rob’s drawings were selected to be displayed in New York’s prestigious Arnot Museum of Art.

PORTRAITS In April of 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. The winning portraits were featured in International Artist Magazine. Another of his portraits graced the cover of The Artist’s Magazine, 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, Senior, and Ambassador Sol Linowitz. Rob’s portrait demonstrations have become a favorite for students attending the Portrait Societies’ Portrait Academies. One is written up here. For more information go to

SCULPTURE Rob has been selected as a professional member of the National Sculpture Society. He has created a series of carved marble reliefs which are now permanently located in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. A life sized marble statue of Mother Teresa also stands in the Shrine, based on Robert’s design. Rob also completed a sculpture of a fifteen foot crucifix which hangs above the alter in a “Our Lady of Mercy” church in Potomac, Maryland.

TEACHING Rob is known for his inspiring and informative teaching style. He teaches at The Art League of Virginia and holds workshops throughout the United States and abroad.
