This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Corrado Cagli (b.1910 / d.1976)

Cagli was born in Ancona, in 1910.  His family moved to Rome in 1915.

Cagli painted a mural on a building in Sistina Street, in 1927, making  his artistic debut.   In 1928, he made another mural painting, in a hall in Vantaggio Street.  Cagli held his first personal exposition in the "Gallery of Art of Rome,” in 1932.  Together with other prominent artists, including Giuseppe Capogrossi and Emanuele Cavalli, he formed the group of the "New Roman School of Painting," better known as Scuola Romana.

While in Rome in the early 1930s Cagli was considered a leading exponent of the upcoming generation of artists.  He exhibited works at the "Comet" gallery in New York in 1937 and 1938.

In 1938, during World War II, being Jewish, Cagli fled to Paris then to New York where he became a U.S. citizen.

Cagli executed a series of dramatic drawings on his experiences during the war.  He enlisted the U.S. Army, was involved in the 1944 Normandy landings, and fought in Belgium and Germany. He was with the forces that liberated the Buchenwald concentration camp.

Cagli returned to Rome, in 1948,  taking permanent residence there. According to his method of multiple search, he experimented in various abstract and non-figurative techniques (neo-metaphysical, neo-cubist, informal). In 1946, he was awarded the Guggenheim prize then in 1954, the Marzotto prize.

He died at Rome in 1976.
