Reading by the Window

Antonio Calderara, 1935

Beginning in 1934, the warm, polarizing light of Lake Orta became Calderara’s favorite subject. For example, works such as “La finestra” (1935) and “La chiesa di S. Antonio di Vacciago” (1937) were produced. But also in portraits, landscapes and still lifes of the 1940’s, the people, objects and ambience are surrounded by a warm, dusty light. []
