Underappreciated Artist #5

Porfirio DiDonna

There don't seem to be many images readily available on line of this artist's work. I remember some beautiful Cezannesque oil paintings in the 80"s and 90's at the Nielsen Gallery in Boston. I know very little about the artist other then he began as a very reductionist abstractionist and died of brain cancer at the age of 44 at the height of his talent. These are all works on paper measuring about 29" X 44".

This photograph of Porfirio DiDonna was taken by Peter Bellamy in 1985, a year before his death.
