About the work
Provenance
Aristodimos Kaldis
Greek-American, 1899–1979
Follow

Aristodimos Kaldis moved to New York in 1930 and fell in with the New York School and Abstract Expressionists, keeping company with Nicholas Marsicano, Philip Pavia, and Franz Kline. It was said that his public lectures on art and archaeology drew many New York artists including Willem de Kooning. Though Kaldis’s aesthetic was sympathetic to Color Field painting, his practice remained representational, characterized by loose brushwork, vivid colors, and the use of thinned oil paint applied as a wash. Most of his subjects are landscapes representing real locations, like Gloucester Massachusetts (1976) or Cagnes Hillside (1974). Kaldis also made a large number of works based on the Mediterranean scenery of his childhood.
