Pasquale Celommi, Roseto degli Abruzzi

Pasquale Celommi (Montepagano, 1851 – Roseto degli Abruzzi, 1928) was a painter of great personality in the extensive and very valuable group of Abruzzo artists (1800s – 1900s) who gave rise to what critics have called Abruzzo realism. Abruzzo was a particularly fruitful source of inspiration for Pasquale Celommi who, in his vast production, ranged through social realism, religious and landscape art with his beautiful marine that elected him “the painter of light”.

Celommi was also the ancestor of a generation of artists, especially his son Raffaello, who were not far behind. Pasquale’s masterpieces are Il ciabattino, La Pescivendola, L’operaio politico and Uno sposalizio abruzzese.
