This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter, lithographer, and drawing specialist, John Cadel was born in Fanna, Italy and settled in Chicago, Illinois where he exhibited at the Art Institute from 1940 to 1942.

He received his early art training at the Royal Academies in Venice and Florence.

Peter Hastings Falk (editor), Who Was Who in American Art

A note from Leonora LiPuma Turner:

Mr. Cadel was a personal friend of mine.  I met him through the Italian Cultural Center in Stone Park Illinois when I was the President.  He came to the school of the Art Institute of Chicago as a Foreign student and part time teacher in 1930.  He exhibited extensively in major art shows from 1932 on in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, San Francesco and other cities.  He had one man shows in New York and Chicago. (medium: oil, water color, gouache, pastel, lithograph, fresco).  Cadel's work is represented in numerous public and private art collections both in the United States and Italy.

Cadel experimented extensively in the field of art and illustration applied to the motion picture industries and collaborated in work produced by Omnibus, NBC, the United States Information Agency, Coronet Films and other motion picture producers.  The film "Firebird", spotlighting Igor Stravinsky, was based on Cadel's painting and took prizes a the the New York Film Festival.  Other films based on his work took the British Broadcasting Co's 1969 Cinema Award.

The last painting he did is in our Gallery which is named after him The John Cadel Gallery. The painting in our gallery is the last painting he did before returning to his family in Italy where he passed away in 1977.
