Portrait Artist Robert Maniscalco

About Having a Maniscalco Portrait

Having a legacy oil portrait by nationally renowned portrait artist, Robert Maniscalco, expresses love in a way a car, a Rolex or a diamond never will. We hope you will enjoy Robert’s gallery of heirloom, legacy portraiture, created for the ages. Robert travels all over the world to create heirloom portraits in oil, pastel and charcoal, including executive, political, religious, military, judicial and family portraiture. His award winning work can be found in over 1,200 private and public collections.
Once referred to as a “Society Portrait,” a fine oil portrait was a symbol of prominence and nobility. Today, bringing a portrait into being carries with it a much more profound meaning.

Richard Avedon famously said that “All photographs are accurate, none of them is the truth.” Perhaps truth can be found only in the painted portrait. rm

A portrait tells the story of our legacy, well after we are gone. In time, your portrait will be more you than you.

A portrait is a fantasy. When the fantasy succeeds, it activates the viewer’s imagination, triggering empathy and creating the illusion of insight into the subject. Dina Litovsky

A portrait is the most eloquent way to recognize those who have achieved a high level of excellence and/or esteem in their lives. It’s not an ego trip because it is an expression of one’s relationship with others.

Robert’s portraits of children eloquently capture this special time
I don’t over think who the subject is that I am painting. I’m only ever asking one question when I paint: how can I make this individual appear even kinder and more lovable than I found them? As an artist, my goal to to speak light into the world. rm

The Family Portrait is a celebration of who we are, a tradition steeped in love and connection.


The Art of Portraiture

When I encounter my subject I try to get a sense of how they move through space, their rhythm and energy, to learn what drives them. I become them in a way, so I can paint myself.

Bill Brusilo

The presentation of a portrait, is both a solemn and joyful occasion.
