Giulio Amodio (Italian, 1868-1911), Fisher Boy, oil on canvas, signed lower left, 60″ x 32″
Very little information is available on this Neapolitan painter who began to exhibit genre paintings and landscapes at the Promoter of Naples Salvator Rosa in 1891. In Rome in 1893 he presented himself with an Angiulillo who received a mention of merit. At the Milan Triennale of 1894 he sent colorful images of Neapolitan life: Palm Sunday and II return from fishing. He was also present at the Turin exhibitions in 1898 (Via di Pozzuoli), Munich in 1899 (The Last Drop), Naples in 1906 (The first child) and in 1911 (Fisherwoman).
His most exceptional work in pictorial realism, depicts a little girl posing, dressed in pink. The delicacy of the scene is remarkable and enhanced by the excellent technical mastery of the author. He began to exhibit genre paintings and landscapes in 1891, at the Promotrice di Napoli Salvator Rosa. In 1893 he was awarded for his ‘Angiulillo’. At the Triennale in Milan in 1894 he presented images of Neapolitan life. He was also present at the Turin exhibition of 1898, in Munich in 1899, in Naples in 1906 and in 1911 (‘Pescatrice’).
