Jose Cestero - Highest National Award - Salvador Dali
Jose Cestero (1937-) is one of the first and greatest masters of Contemporary Dominican art. Cestero has recently been awarded the Premio Nacional or National Award by the Dominican Republic government... the highest artistic honor in the country.
His works are characterized by movement and color in a light, fluid brushstroke that almost appear like oil sketches. He has painted and studied in the USA and Europe and his paintings reflect an international influence that is rare in Latin American art. Works by some Fauvists and their successors, like Raul Dufy, come to mind.
This painting depicts the artist himself painting Salvador Dali . The painting is truly a masterpiece of Dominican art. It will make a wonderful decorative piece, too.
