Introducing Cesar Santos



Cavalier Galleries is pleased to announce the addition of Cesar Santos to our roster of exceptional young realists. Born in Cuba in 1982, Santos immigrated to the United States in 1995 where he began to develop his artistic interests. Santos studied at Miami Dade College, followed by the New World School of the Arts where he received his Associates Degree in Fine Arts, and continued in Florence at the Angel Academy of Art under Michael John Angel, student of Pietro Annigoni. Here he was introduced to the techniques and methods of the Renaissance, 18th century, and the French Ateliers of 19th century.

Upon graduation, Santos returned to Miami where he has been building a successful career. He has completed numerous public commissions, including "The Camera," unveiled in January as the poster image for the Miami International Film Festival, "Danza," the poster image for the Miami International Ballet Festival, and most recently a presidential portrait of Dr. Modesto A. Maidique, commissioned by the Frost Art Museum. His work is held in private and public collections in Europe, Latin America and North America.

Santos' works will be featured in our Greenwich gallery as a part of our "Reviving
Realism: Contemporary Masters of the Classical Tradition" Exhibition, running from January 22nd - February 7, 2010.
