The listed Italian author of this older and peaceful oil painting is Luigi De Luca.
De Luca was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1905. Coming from a family sea faring men, he received formal training at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. After painting professionally for many decades, he is well known for his paintings of boats in the Bay of Naples.
In this painting, De Luca's careful observation of the atmospheric conditions captures both- the beauty and peacefulness along the Bay of Naples, at sunset, with Capri beyond. Arguably, this is one of De Luca's finest paintings of this famous location!
