John Kacere


The following, submitted June 2002, is from Debra Zeller, who credits the artist's obituary in "Art in America," November 1999:

"John Kacere, 79, painter, died August 5, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Born in Iowa, Kacere moved to New York in the early 1950s. He studied at Cooper Union and showed abstract paintings at Zabriskie Gallery throughout the '50s. In the '60s he showed at Allan Stone Gallery. In 1971, he began the series of large paintings for which he is best known, Photo-Realist depictions of the female torso clad only in sheer lingerie. Numerous exhibitions of these works were presented at New York's O.K. Harris Gallery".
