Friedrich Paul Nerly
Nerly Friedrich Paul
Venezia 1842 / Lucerna 1919
Son and pupil of Nerly Christian Friederich the old, the German painter who lived in Venice since 1837, attended the Academy under the guidance of Eugenio De Blaas, Federico Moja and Pompeo Marino Molmenti.
Of Prussian origin, he is called back to military service, from 1862 to 1865 and again in 1866, thus having the opportunity to visit the main German cities, including Duesseldorf, Weimar, Dresden and Monaco. He travelled to France, Austria and Dalmatia, returning to Italy in 1868. He moved to Rome, where he took part in numerous exhibitions of Società Romana degli Amatori e Cultori between 1870 and 1896.
After 1870, he abandoned Venetian subjects and southern landscape becomes his primary subject, leaving a special place to the sea.
His stays in Capri are evident and documented by the many paintings that we find in his attendance at numerous exhibitions in Italy and abroad, among which we highlight: Isle of Capri and Capri’s Beach, in 1880 the Academy of Bremen, the White Grotto in Capri and Capri from Massa in 1881 in Berlin, The Salto di Tiberio in Capri in Rome and Berlin, respectively in 1883 and 1884.
