About

framed 18 X 24 sight 11.5 X 17.5 Giuseppe Napoli (1929 - 1967) New York. Giuseppe Napoli is a mid century modernist known for abstract painting and sculpture-portrait, still life, figurative art. Giuseppe Napoli was a Mid-Century Modernist Artist of the New York School. Living throughout most of the 1950's and 60's in Greenwich Village in a small studio space, he was a beloved and talented member of that influential group of artists. He was discovered by legendary dealer Phillip A. Bruno and artist Hans Hofmann. Unafraid to experiment in both the Modernist-Representational style as well as the completely Abstract Expressionism style, he created a strong body of work typical of his period in New York. Unfortunately, Napoli suffered from Depression and would experience severe mood swings, making the launching of his career a bit difficult. Nonetheless, he had many one man shows and participated in numerous group shows. His explosive life was tragically cut short by suicide in 1967, ending a short but brilliant career as a painter, sculpture and collagist and watercolor painter. He was a contemporary of Jean Jansem, Elaine de Kooning, Josef Presser, David Burliuk, Arbit Blatas. He worked in collage and assemblage work akin to Arman, did still lifes of cups and jugs in the manner of his mentor Giorgio Morandi but is best known for his abstract expressionist explorations. Napoli had over 25 one man shows and participated in numerous group shows at some the most progressive galleries of his era, including Roko, Staempfli, Downtown Gallery, Zabriskie, Albert Landry, Delacorte, Alan, Morris, Korman, Paula Insel, Howard Wise and Ellison, he showed internationally in Paris, Milan and Rome, and won a two-year Fulbright scholarship to study in Italy with one of his mentors, Morandi.
