Cavallo: A Recently Sold Painting by Jason Oliva

Ostrich-Cavallo-2013-Jason-Oliva-Painting-4Cavallo. 2013. Acrylic on Canvas. (Sold)

Cavallo … a short history.

The painting, Cavallo, came about after seeing an illustration in an animation book that demonstrated how the front and back legs of a horse differ anatomically. It showed how a horse’s front legs break forward, in the same way as that of a human, while the back legs break backwards, the same as that of an ostrich. And from there I came up with the idea of a man walking in front of an ostrich, with the man representing the front legs of a horse and the ostrich representing the back legs.

Jason Oliva with Cavallo. 2014. NYC

During a trip to Italy, and before I even painted this work, I had made a written note that the Italian word for horse is ‘Cavallo’.  Years later the painting and note somehow gravitated towards each other, as these things often do, and that was how the painting got its name.

I completed Cavallo towards the end of 2013 and it sold shortly after. The work is now hanging in Woodstock, New York.
