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 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.

What objects will represent you or your family’s legacy after you are gone?

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.

The Art of Portraiture

When I encounter my subject the first thing I try to do is 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.

An excellent oil portrait creates an enduring legacy, conveying the love and connection between you, your family, your organization, your community and your culture. It is a valuable heirloom that will be treasured and passed on through generations to come.
