Figurative Art Online Exhibition > The Florence Academy of Art has an online exhibition dedicated to its graduates from 2018 and 2019, featuring 50 drawings, paintings, and sculptures at www.florenceacademyofart.com.

The Florence Academy of Art was founding in 1991 in Florence by the American painter, Daniel Graves, and is dedicated to training painters and sculptors in the figurative realist tradition. Students currently come from over 35 countries to study full time drawing, painting, sculpture anatomy, art history, and, soon, etching. They work only from live models and under natural north light in the academy’s campus in Florence. The graduates represented in this exhibition have all completed the three year program in either Sculpture or Painting, and are now working professionally as fine artists.
