About Us :
Established in 1997, Ann Long Fine Art has earned distinction as a leading gallery specializing in classical realist paintings, drawings, and sculpture by contemporary artists. We represent two generations of painters who share an education of Old Master techniques combined by dedicated craftsmanship. Led by the expertise of Ben Long, Daniel Graves, Charles Cecil these inspired American and European artists ascribe to a "slow art" methodology in which they train as apprentices in Florence, Italy, work strictly from life, use authentic recipes and materials, and are guided by a more painterly aesthetic. The result is museum-quality still life, portraiture, landscape and figures imbued with timeless elegance and the fresh perspective of living masters. In addition to our Florence trained artists, we exhibit the African American portraits in graphite, pastel and watercolor by Pratt Institute graduate, Mario Robinson.
