Italian painter and poet.
Filippo de Pisis was an Italian painter-poet who was born Luigi Filippo Tibertelli in Ferrara.
De Pisis is best known for his cityscapes, metaphysically-inspired maritime scenes, and still lifes, especially those depicting flowers. His work has a particularly airy, in-the-moment quality, and is laden with a sort of pathetic pleasure-pain. De Pisis also executed a large body of lesser-known work, comprising homoerotic sketches of the male nude.
De Pisis spent his life in Rome, Paris and Venice. He lived a very extravagant lifestyle. De Pisis's work was shown twice in the Venice Biennale: once during his life, and once posthumously.
He died in Milan after a long illness on 2 April 1956.
