John Kacere

John C. Kacere (23 June 1920 – 5 August 1999) was an American artist. Originally an Abstract-Expressionist, Kacere adopted a photorealist style in 1963.[1] Nearly all of his photorealist paintings depict the midsection of the female body. He is considered one of the original photorealists,[2] 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.[3] Kacere continued this type of painting throughout the rest of his career, making it an icon of the photorealism movement.[4] In the early 1980s, he branched away from this theme and included the entire body of a woman in lingerie, but returned to his original midsection of the female body in 1988.[3] Kacere’s paintings are figurative but still can be considered still lifes or even landscapes.
