This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter of landscapes and figures, muralist, sculptor and teacher, Xavier Gonzalez was born in Almeria, Spain and was active in Provincetown, Massachusetts from 1947. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago from 1921 to 1923 and with his uncle, Jose Arpa. He also studied at the San Carlos Academy in Mexico City and in Paris and in the Far East.

In the 1920s, he went to San Antonio, Texas to assist his uncle as an art instructor, and he spent time there an as art instructor as well as at Newcomb College at Tulane University.

He was one of the early action painters, beginning in the 1930s, which was many years before Jackson Pollock made this style so famous. But he refused to exhibit that kind of work because he didn't want his experiments to be regarded as his final painting.
