Italian Impressionist Oil on Board Marine Landscape Painting Naples Bay View

Late 19th Century

$4,041.24

About

Everyday fishermen life is captured in this wonderful Italian impressionist late 19th century oil painting on thin board titled fishermen ashore. We love the neutral and natural color palette the painter used to photograph a moment of daily life in a seaside village in the bay of Naples and the wonderful texture. The marine landscape fills us with calm, numerous shades of blue, gray, green and brown are painted with strong brushstrokes that give this view a wonderful texture, lively and compact at the same time. The painting is very realistic but the painter manages to immerse the viewer in an evocative and romantic atmosphere with late afternoon light reflecting on the sea and the autumnal tones fine touches of white gouache pick out the light. The fishermen seem to have ended their fishing day, some are untangling their nets and others are taking care of their boats the landscape is dominated by Vesuvius in the background surrounding the bay. The painting is housed in a fine walnut molded and parcel gilt frame. Signed 'F Coppola Castaldo' low left .

There he knew his companions Stanislao Sidoti and Gustavo Mancinelli, son of one of his professor. Very early and very prolific, he made his debut at the "Salvator Rosa" Promoter in Naples in 1863, maintaining a continuous participation, up to the 1911 exhibition. He preferably painted in oil, tempera or gouache and was a renowned landscape painter. He taught painting at the municipal high school of Naples and was also an honorary professor at the Academy where he had studied. His works "Un boschetto", "At the decline of the day" and "On the shore of the sea", exhibited at the exhibitions of the Promoter of 1872, 1877 and 1881, were purchased by the Kings of Italy Vittorio Emanuele II and Umberto I. The painter's favorite subjects were views of Naples and neighboring areas, rural scenes and more rarely scenes of religious subjects, inspired by the work of Morelli whose studio he frequented. In addition to the exhibitions of the Neapolitan Promoter, it exhibits an exhibition in Genoa, Milan, Turin, Rome and Florence. In 1870 he participated - together with other painters active in Naples, including Giuseppe Boschetto, Camillo Miola, Giuseppe De Nigris - in the German Gallery of New Bond Street in London, with two works: "A scene near Naples" and "An Afternoon " NOTE: Export papers have to be issued to ship this item outside Italy, the process lasts about 40 days.
