The Florence Academy of Art is an American art school in Florence, in Tuscany in central Italy. It was started by Daniel Graves, an American painter, in 1991.[1] Teaching is in the traditional style of the old masters.[1] The school is a branch of the International Academy of Fine Art,[2][self-published source?] and is recognised as a certificate programme by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.[3][self-published source?] The school is not listed by the Italian ministry of education, the Ministero dell'Istruzione, dell'Università e della Ricerca, among the institutions authorised to award degrees in music, dance and the arts.[4]

A review in the New York Times of a show of works by students of the school in Manhattan, New York, in 2003 was not wholly negative, but spoke of " … inertly composed still lifes, laughable allegories and preciously romantic self-portraits ... glazed by decades of exposure to tobacco smoke".[1]
