Son of the painter Carlo Giuseppe Cavalli and Francesca Motta, he left Santa Maria Maggiore for France when his family moved there in 1855. The outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War impelled the Cavalli family to move first to Paris, then to Marseille, where Enrico met and frequented Adolphe Monticelli, whose teachings on the subject of light and colour greatly influenced the young Italian painter. His pictorial production of this period remains largely unknown, however we do know that two portraits by Cavalli were accepted for the Paris Salon of 1881 and particularly admired by the critic of magazine L'Illustrazione Italiana.
