Cesar A. Villacres
"Rue de la Paix, Paris" French Impressionist Cityscape Oil Painting on Canvas

20th Century

$2,500

About

Cesar A. Villacres was known for his impressionistic street scenes depicting France. This painting is a tremendously vivid and alive street scene from Paris in the 20th Century of Rue de la Paix. People are 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 tree-lined streets with corner cafes, 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. The painting is signed in the bottom left corner and is displayed in a beautiful fitting wood frame. Art measures 9 x 12 in Frame measures 13 x 16 in In this piece, 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. The artist was truly a master of capturing the magic of New York in all of its glory throughout the seasons. This piece is executed whimsically, yet dramatically evoking an emotion of wonder and beauty. PROVENANCE: Private collection, New York, acquired circa 1965. This original artwork includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the Gallery. The piece will be stamped from Lilac Gallery on its verso.
