Cesar A. Villacres
Cesar A. Villacres was known for his impressionistic street scenes depicting France. Most of his landscape paintings are tremendously vivid and alive street scene from Paris in the 20th Century. People going about their day; street vendors and flower sellers are alive as horse and carries are wispily riding along. In the distance, you will see detailed some elements like a tree-lined street with cars driving pass, and beautiful architecture from the city. The use of thick paint is noted, with quick brushwork and precise attention to detail. An absolutely great work of the times, capturing an ever so fleeting moment from over a century ago.
In his pieces, Cesar A. Villacres represents himself as a French impressionistic visual artist. There is not much information about this artist but the majority of his work was by capturing the Paris busy street scenes from the 20th Century. He mostly used oil on canvas by using subtle brush strokes with a wide color pallet. Some of his work has been in action like 'La Madeleine' an oil on canvas sold at Quinn's Auction Galleries in 2009 and also 'New York City 1950's Street Scene' and 'Parisian City Streets' in 2008. The artist was truly a master of expressing the magic and nostalgia of the Parisian life of the "Belle Époque" in France.
