Giuseppe “Pino” Dangelico (1939-2010) was born in Bari, Italy. Trained at The Art Institute of Bari and later at Milan’s Academy of Brea, he perfected his skills painting nudes and figures and was heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites and Macchiaioli.
After establishing himself as a successful artist in his native land, Pino decided to immigrate to the United States in search of further artistic freedom and opportunity. He was soon discovered by the distinguished Borghi Gallery, which held several prestigious exhibitions of his work in New York and Boston.
Pino’s early paintings, featuring soft and romantic characters, caught the attention of major book publishers Dell and Zebra Books. In 1980 Zebra commissioned him to do his first book cover. His popularity soon grew within the literary community, and he became the artist-in-demand for Zebra, Bantam, Simon and Schuster, Harlequin, Penguin USA and Dell. Over the ensuing decades Pino illustrated the covers of over 3,000 books, with his unique style dominating the market.
