Pino is a timeless talent—his name synonymous with romance and emotion. His artistic journey began with his childhood in Italy and eventually led him to become one of the world’s most beloved artists and illustrators.
Park West Gallery is offering its collectors the chance to be a part of Pino’s legacy with unique paintings and hand-embellished giclees during our limited-time Summer Sale event.
Collectors can choose from 42 works by the artist who revolutionized the illustration industry and took the fine art world by storm. The collection contains an amazing 24 unique works by Pino, who sadly passed away in 2010:
- 10 paintings
- 8 drawings
- 6 mixed media drawings
These unique works consist of oil paintings on board, canvas, and paper as well as drawings beautifully rendered in pastel, watercolor, and pencil. These 24 unique works are the only ones of their kind in existence, so once they are sold, they’re gone for good. Be sure to collect your favorite while supplies last!
Along with these one-of-a-kind works, the sale also includes limited-edition giclees on canvas of 18 iconic Pino paintings. These giclees are hand embellished to perfectly recall the textures, colors, and emotions the artist instilled with his own brushstrokes.
“You can really feel the passion and emotion behind my dad’s work,” says Max Dangelico, Pino’s son. “I think that’s why people are drawn to it because these paintings are alive.”
The Legacy of Pino
Pino (born Giuseppe Dangelico) grew up in post-World War II Italy. He first displayed a talent for art at an early age, with his family supplying him with anatomy books and art supplies.
He studied at the Art Institute in Bari and perfected his talent for painting figures at Milan’s Academy of Brera. After immigrating to the U.S. in 1978 with his family, renowned publishers like Zebra, Simon and Shuster, and Harlequin hired Pino to illustrate their book covers.
“He was known as the top illustrator,” Dangelico says. “He created an entire genre—the book covers that you see on romance novels and historical novels.”
During his career, Pino created more than 3,000 book covers, movie posters, and magazine illustrations. These included covers for notable authors like Danielle Steel, Amanda Ashley, and Sylvie Summerfield.
In 1992, Pino transitioned from illustration to the world of fine art. The result was a body of work that captures everything from the tenderness of family life to the energetic movements of a flamenco dancer. He continued to draw and paint until his death in 2010.
