Mario Cortiello was a pupil of Gennaro Villani, but soon found his own style. He became one of the most important painters of the Neapolitan art, without renewing the traditional art, and was called The Chagall of Napoli. An art critic characterized him as an “instinctive painter”. Between 1930 and 1948 he took part in the Biennale of Venice and the Quadriennale in Roma, but also exhibited in other European and American cities.
