Daniel Altshuler studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and was an assistant
to sculptor Walker Hancock from 1985 to 1998, working on architectural sculpture and ornament,
busts, and bas-reliefs.
When he creates a sculpture, whether it is a portrait or allegorical statuary, it is essential
to him that he captures the spirit and the likeness of the subject or theme. He strives
to show inspiration and beauty in his work. By his choice of modeling and knowledge of the
use of light, Altshuler combines these mediums to best bring out the intended spirit, energy,
and expression in his work. Carved marble or stone may be utilized for one kind of expression
while bronze would be used for another.
Altshuler is an elected member of the National Sculpture Society and has won awards from
the NSS, Portrait Society of America, and National Academy of Design. His work is in the
collections of the Carter Center Presidential Library and Museum, The White House, Cape
Ann Historical Museum, and Brookgreen Gardens, as well as many universities, hospitals,
and private collections. He lives and works in Gloucester, MA. ...more
