Porfirio Di Donna

American, (1942–1986)
Porfirio DiDonna was an American painter. Among his early influences were Matisse, Mondrain, and Kandinsky, as well as Raphael and early Italian Renaissance artists such as Fra Angelico. He called his early paintings “religious” and they often were on religious themes, such as crucifixions and the stations of the cross. By 1970 he was starting to work with the minimal marks that would come to characterize his painting and in late 1971 he chose to limit himself to only dots, dashes, or straight lines loosely aligned in a horizontal and vertical formation. The restrictions resulted in a flexible grid, a form that would wholly absorb him for nearly a decade.
