Tommaso Pollace (1748 – 1830) was an Italian painter.
He was born in Palermo, but died in Caltanissetta. He trained in Palermo in the circle of Vito d'Anna. His first paintings were for the Mother Church of Alcamo. In 1782, he began painting in a studio at Termini Imerese painting for churches in Palermo and the Marchese di Santa Croce, painting for his palace on Via Maqueda, and his Villa di Mezzomonreale, now a military hospital. Pollace painted a Martyrdom of St John the Evangelist for the church of Santa Maria di Gesù in Petralia Soprana. However the competition in Palermo from Francesco Manno, lnterguglielmi, and Grano prompted him to obtain commissions in the 19th century at Scicli, Modica, Ragusa, Mazzarino, Barrafranca, Gangi, Agira, and San Cataldo.
