Jim DeCesare's narrative portraiture pays homage to the Golden Age of illustration. Classic large-scale works honor the great tradition of oil painting, and convey unique, dynamic narratives. Jim DeCesare brings history to life with his compelling historical portraiture. Connecting visual reference and historical fact, DeCesare invents striking, one-of-a-kind historical narratives in oil. DeCesare's historical portrait paintings have served as ideal teaching tools for museums, libraries, historical institutions, churches and schools. DeCesare lectures on the processes of creating each image, and the historical value of each narrative. Contact DeCesare Studio for leasing works from the collection, commissioning new work for display or publication, and lecture fees.
