Luca Papaluca (1890-1932)

An Italian pier-head painter, he was working primarily in Port Naples, Italy.  Luca Papaluca's signatures are typically L. Papaluca on a diagonal, underscored with a slash.  His works are primarily in gouache with the ship's name in print centered.  Mt. Vesuvius is a common background element. Sometimes he painted also a pair of pictures depicting the same vessel in fair and stormy weather. He also painted a few oil paintings on canvas.

His work is often confused with that of his son Louis (Luigi) Papaluca.
