Daniel Graves is an ARC Living Master™. He graduated from the Maryland Art Institute in 1972 where he studied with Joseph Shepard and Frank Russell. He traveled to Florence in the 70’s in search of the techniques of those masters who inspired him most: Rembrandt, Titian, Velasquez, and also the French academic painters. There he found a personal style that fuses the richness of 19h century Italian painting with academic draftsmanship. He continued his education at the Villa Schifanoia Graduate School of Fine Art with Richard Serrin, and studied under Nerina Simi, daughter of the Florentine painter, Filadelfo Simi, a student of Gérôme.

In 1984, along with Charles Cecil, Daniel opened Studio Cecil-Graves. Daniel Graves went on to found The Florence Academy of Art in 1991 to keep the tradition of great painting and sculpture alive where he still serves as the Academic Director. In April 2008, Daniel Graves and The Florence Academy of Art received the Excellence in Art Education Award from the Portrait Society of America. The academy's programs in Florence, Sweden and the U.S. are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and they are recognized as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
