Giorgio Cavallon (1904-1989) was born in Sorio, near Vicenza, Italy. He was influenced early in his career by Dutch modernist Piet Mondrian. In New York City during the 1930s and 1950s, he was closely associated with Arshile Gorky, William De Kooning, and other abstract expressionists. Since the late 1960s and 1970s, Cavallon has framed his surfaces with small, dark shapes in order to control the large, unified rectangles of light color. Cavallons paintings have been described as exuding a subtle, atmospheric light reminiscent of Mediterranean villages.
