Biography O La Pira
La Pira, O. (act. ca. 1890-1910).
Painted gouache scenes around the Bay of Naples and along the Amalfi Coast, O La Pira can be dated because he/she produced signed gouaches that served as the basis for so-called undivided back postcards, (1) which were produced just prior to, or just after, 1900.
Examples of these postcards postmarked during the period regularly show up on E Bay, especially on E Bay Italy. Given the proclivity in Naples for painting to become a generational family business , i.e. the Gatti family, the Corelli family, and others, it is probable that O La Pira was the grandson/granddaughter of arguably the greatest of the Neapolitan gouache painters, Gioacchino La Pira (act. ca. 1839-1870) (2)
