Dana Levin (b. 1969) began her fine art education at the age of
fourteen, attending the competitive fine arts summer program at
Belvoir Terrace in Lenox, MA, and attended high school at the
prestigious New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida. She
continued her studies at the Art Institute of Chicago, where her
achievements earned her an early graduation with a Bachelor of Fine
Building upon these strong fundamentals, Levin moved to Italy to study
the techniques of the European masters, completing a three-year
curriculum under painter Daniel Graves, and upon graduation was asked
to join the school’s drawing and painting faculty for the next five
years. She is considered to be among one of their most important
Levin’s search for meaningful subjects for her paintings has taken her
throughout the United States, Eastern and Western Europe, the Middle
East, and South America. Additionally, she has been awarded numerous
prizes and scholarships from organizations, which include the Italian
Cultural Institute of San Francisco, the Art Renewal Center and the
John F. and Anna Lee Stacey Fund.
Humble Bowl is a simple, powerful painting. A deep blue tablecloth
provides the stage for Levin’s composition. At center, a copper bowl
glows as it gently reflects light from its burnished scalloped edges.
A casually-arranged drape contributes a high-key contrast to the
somber understatement of these elements. Through careful modulation of
color in the shadows of its folds, Levin draws the eye around her
composition in an ellipse that mimics the object she describes.
Upon returning to the United States, Dana opened an atelier school,
The New School of Classical Art, in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. It was
closed in 2008 so she could devote herself full-time to painting. Dana
has received awards and honors from prestigious national and
international juried shows and museums. She is also included in
important museum collections.
