Lawrence Calcagno, Dark Shore

Lawrence Calcagno
Lawrence Calcagno was born on March 23, 1913 in San Francisco, and passed away at the age of 80, in 1993. He began painting at the age of 19, and continued to use the medium throughout his life to describe the world around him. After serving in WW11, he painted in Paris under the G.I. Bill.
Calcagno began to show in San Francisco and New York as part of the second generation of Abstract Expressionist painters. His style ranges from meditative linear abstract landscapes to free-form abstract expressionism. http://www.askart.com/artist/Lawrence_Calcagno/85649/Lawrence_Calcagno.aspx
