Curator's Comment:  DANIEL BENNETT SCHWARTZ WON THE SOCIETY OF ILLUSTRATORS GOLD
MEDAL FOR ELEVEN YEARS--AN UNPARALLELED ACHIEVEMENT ! Schwartz was a champion of illustration  
art before Rockwell became a collector favorite with prices in the millions. He was also a painter's
painter and an art critic whose You Tube video has been seen more than a million times. For more than
15 years he worked on a mammoth 6' x 9' canvas called The Running Man which went through a
constant series of revision and Schwartz' continuous commentary on this progressive work resulted in
one of the most important pieces of art criticism ever written. Schwartz  was educated at the High
School of Music and Art, the Art Students League (where he studied painting with Yasuo Kuniyoshi) and
the Rhode Island School of Design. Early in his career he won two Louis Comfort Tiffany Grants and a
purchase prize from the Childe Hassam Fund of the American Institute of Arts and Letters. He has had
fifteen one-man shows, nine in New York City, and has exhibited in institutions from the Boston
Museum of Fine Arts, The National Portrait Gallery to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. His work is
included in the collections of the National Academy of Design, and The National Portrait Gallery. He was
elected to the National Academy of Design in 1997. Schwartz was a pioneer in the wider use of quality
art by magazines. His list of clients included Time, Fortune and Esquire to CBS, NBC Television. Daniel
Schwartz was inducted into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 2002
