Richard Greathouse

American, Born 1986

Nashville native, Richard Greathouse, currently resides and paints in Italy. He is currently teaching at the Florence Academy of Art, from which he graduated in 2011. Although he is classically trained in the manner of the old masters, Richard seeks to extend these traditions into a contemporary context. His technical strength in drawing along with a deep understanding of human anatomy are evidenced in the naturalistic works he creates on canvas and paper. As he moves forward in his career, he continues to develop his philosophy of seeing and further hone his craft, while receiving international recognition for the artistic merit of his work.
