Filippo de Pisis was an Italian painter-poet who was born Luigi Filippo Tibertelli in Ferrara. In 1919 De Pisis moved to Rome, where he started to paint. While important editors of his time criticized De Pisis for producing overly-sentimental poetry, this emotional streak translated well on canvas.

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; he had a pet parrot named Coco, and in Venice he was one of a handful of residents at the time who used a gondola. He had two personal gondoliers on 24-hour duty, who wore black-and-gold livery.

De Pisis's work was shown twice in the Venice Biennale*: once during his life, and once posthumously. De Pisis's work for the Collezione Verzocchi in 1949-1950 is now housed in the Pinacoteca Civica of Forlì. A large portion of his work is also housed in the Museo Filippo de Pisis in Ferrara.

He died in Milan after a long illness, in 1956.
