biography

The Italian painter, graphic artist and sketcher Antonio Calderara was born in Abbiategrasso near Milan on October 28, 1903. In 1923, Antonio Caldera’s first solo exhibit took place. In 1924, the artist gave up his engineering studies and devoted himself entirely to painting. In the year that followed, Antonio Calderara produced his first self-portrait. Thereafter came a series of landscapes and small city views such as "Crepuscolo" (1927) and "Via Vallone" (1929). Antonio Calderara stayed in Milan until the year 1933, but then he moved to the Lago d’Orta, where he lived first in Pella and then later in Vacciago. 

Beginning in 1934, the warm, opalizing light of Lake Orta became his favorite subject. 

Later, in 1957–58, Antonio Calderara reduced the composition of his pictures to a simple geometric pattern that places the pictorial elements into an abstract relationship with each other. Antonio Calderara died in Vacciago at Lake Orta on June 27, 1978.
