We will present historical works such as Calderara, alongside contemporary pieces! @artbasel 2018

The self-taught painter Antonio Calderara led a secluded life in Northern Italy, finding inspiration in the lighting of nearby landscapes (Lake Orta, especially) as well as the hard-edged paintings of Josef Albers and Piet Mondrian. Calderara is best known for his abstract paintings, which combine geometric abstraction with an atmospheric finish, achieving a misty quality through subtle, almost invisible variations in color.
