12 Oct John Kacere art

 

 

John C. Kacere (23 June 1920 – 5 August 1999) was an American artist.

Originally an abstract expressionist, Kacere adopted aphotorealist style in 1963. Nearly all of his photorealist paintings depict the midsection of the female body. He is considered one of the original photorealists, although he rejected the term.

Kacere painted his first photorealist painting in 1969 involving the midsection of a woman dressed in lingerie. It was over three times life size.
