Timothy Joseph Allen is an American painter living and working in Rome, Italy since 1998. He is firmly rooted in the Classical tradition of figurative art and is principally influenced by the Old Masters of the 17th century. When asked what relevance the past has on contemporary art he replies, "we need to be reminded: there is no beauty without rules and there is no better rule book than nature."

He is also the founder and director of The Painting and Drawing Art Studio of Rome. Professor Allen has taught at AUR as an Adjunct Faculty member since 2006.
