Gino Parin was born in Trieste in 1876. His real name was Federico Gino Pollack. He began his artistic education in the studio of the Trieste painter Eugenio Scomparini and then continued at the Venetian Girolamo Navarra’s one. At 19 he went to Munich to attend the Academy where he attended the courses of Karl Raupp and became acquainted with the painting of the Pre-Raphaelites, Lenbach, von Marées and von Stuck. Having become a member of the Münchener Künstler Genossenschaft, he often exhibited at the Glaspalast. He traveled extensively in Europe, visiting Switzerland, France and England. From 1910 he began to participate in the collective exhibitions of the Trieste Artistic Circle. Here he settled permanently at the outbreak of the First World War. He participated to the Biennials of 1921, 1924, 1928 and 1932. In 1923 he received the gold medal at the Turin Quadrennial. During this period his style, from the original German academic setting, evolved towards a personal reworking of the taste of the Deco years. His production, mainly focused on female portraits and interior painting, earned him the definition of “painter of beautiful women”.
Deported by the Germans in 1944, he died in the Bergen Belsen camp.
