Pasquale Avallone ( Salerno , 1884 – 1965 ) was an Italian painter and sculptor. Born in Salerno, he received his first art lessons from his father Giuseppe Avallone . In 1903 he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples.
Returning to Salerno , he devoted himself to the study of painting and sculpture. In 1909, at the LXVIII exhibition of the Promoter Society of Fine Arts in Turin, he exhibited a self- portrait, and in the same year he was asked to sign up for L’Union Internationale des Beaux Arts et des Lettres in Paris: the executive committee asked him to join the organization by July 16, 1909.
In 1910 Avallone was entrusted with the task of creating the cieling and the curtain of the Teatro Municipal Luciani ; two years later he decorated the restored church of Sant’Antonio Abate and shortly thereafter, the Ave Gratia Plena church. In 1917 he was awarded the “Salvator Rosa” in Naples for the “Le madr” triptych, purchased immediately by the Naples Chamber of Commerce.
In 1924 he took part in the Annual Exhibition in Milan , organized by the Society for Fine Arts and Permanent Exhibition , where he exhibited the works “Giovinetta” and “Salerno – Vecchie Case”. In 1922 he was commissioned a bonnet in ebony and bronze for the Cruiser Campania , his first important bronze work, which thus proved to be a skilled sculptor: the masterpiece was worth the conferral of the title of “knight of Italy”.
He established himself as a teacher and point of reference for the Salerno painters of the 1930s.
In 1948 some of his paintings were exhibited at the “Prima Annuale Nazionale d’Arte” , an opportunity for comparison between artists of different generations and different cultural and geographical backgrounds.
Many of his paintings are permanently displayed at the Provincial Art Gallery of Salerno and in the museum of the historic building of the Chamber of Commerce. More on Pasquale Avallone
