Painted by Francesco Filosa (1910-1990). Circa mid-1900s. Measures 27H x 35W. Francesco Filosa was born in Castellammare di Stabia 20 October 1910 into an ancient family of painters and decorators. His first public participation was at a trade union collective in the mid-1930s, where, in addition to the already established Screws, Fox, Pratella, Crisconio and Irollo, was able to know and attend young artists of the caliber Galante, Casciaro, Striccoli, Brancaccio, Ciardo, Good and Bresciani. While continuing his decorator activities in the various churches of Castellammare and Sorrento, Francesco Filosa honed his painting skills thanks to the assistance of Charles Striccoli and Francesco Galante. At the end of World War II, his artistic life took a decisive turn when he abandoned his father's business and devoted himself completely to painting. Since 1950 his work has been constantly present in all the manifestations of the "Promoter Salvator Rosa" with increasing appearances in exhibitions. Noticed by critics and art lovers alike, in 1966 he was first invited to the Quadrennial in Rome and then to the London European, where he was awarded the Silver Seal. Among his most significant accomplishments were acclaims at the Neapolitan Festival and as one of the Roman artists at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni of 1968. His work also appeared at the Art Exhibition in the South (of Italy), the Eleventh Exhibition of Southern Artists at Fazzari Palace Catanzaro, the first painting exhibition at Naples in 1968, the Galleria San Petronio in Bologna and finally, at the Beato Angelico in Rome. Since 1970 he took part in the Exhibition "European Art" in Rome, where in 1971 he was awarded the World Seal. More acclaim came in at the Exhibition "Artists of the South" of Messina, the Show of Neapolitan Painting in Florence's Palazzo Antinori, the Celebrations of Michelangelo Castellamare di Stabia, Castellamare of the National Painting Prize, the Show "Naples Present" in the Diano Marino Group in the Province of Imperia, the Sant'Agata Gulfs Prize, at the itinerant exhibition "Contemporary Art Examples" of Messina, Mazzaro del Vallo, Taormina, Acireale and Palermo, the art Exhibition of the "International Meeting of Cinema" of Sorrento, the 10th National Painting Exhibition at the International Salon of Naples, the Manzoni Gallery in Milan in 1975, the European Biennial of Monte Carlo, and notably ~ the Prize "Villa Lumiere" at the Unesco Palace in Paris in 1977. In 1979 his work was displayed in a Retrospective Exhibition at the Center of Art of Naples (The Zahir). In 1983 he was awarded the Gold Medal as the winner of the European Prize of San Marino Culture. His first exhibition, held in Castellammare di Stabia, dates back to 1934. During his long and productive career, he continuously won critical acclaim and an ever-expanding audience. His paintings were always a source of analysis by avant-garde critics and art scholars, obtaining profiles and articles in specialized magazines and newspapers. His work has been described, among others, by Barbers, Schettini, Girace, Ortolani, Ricci, Baron, Attardi, Mormino, Di Bartolomeo Pagano, Lenzi, Fucito, Ziino, Sorrentino, Calabrese and Agrillo. His works are in numerous public and private collections both in Italy and abroad, particularly in the United States, Australia, England, France and Germany, where, during his imprisonment during World War II, he was able to be appreciated as a decorator and painter. In 1989 he was preparing a retrospective to be exhibited in China, in Beijing, but his worsening state of health prevented him from completing the project.
