Dictionary of Artists


To meet the requirement of scholars, art dealers, collectors or simple amateurs of having a quick and effective tool at their disposal to satisfy the various exigencies connected with the world of art, first of all the in-depth analysis of the work of painters, sculptors, engravers, photographers, etc., the "Dictionary of artists" puts itself up as an annotated list of names, sometimes accompanied, if marked by an asterisk, by a biography and by some signature examples.

Each artist is matched with a series of index cards regarding the works registered in the Data Bank of the Matteucci Institute, which can be issued on request.

The biographies are taken from the Dizionario degli artisti edited by Cristina Bonagura, integral part of the work Pittori & pittura dell'Ottocento italiano (1996-1997), coordinated by Giuliano Matteucci with the cooperation of Paul Nicholls and realized by the Redazioni Grandi Opere of the "Istituto Geografico De Agostini", to whom the Matteucci Institute expresses its sincere thanks for authorizing the circulation of the texts on line.


Agelli Paolo*

Forlì 1778 - 1841
Fu a Roma tra il 1802 e il 1804 allievo di V. Camuccini. Rientrato a Forlì intorno al 1810, realizzò una Santa Chiara per la Chiesa di San Sebastiano (Forlì, Pinacoteca), opera di impianto accademico ma realizzata con una stesura luminosa. Si ricordano anche una pala d’altare per Sant’Andrea Avellino di Meldola, e la decorazione dell’altare di San Nicola nella chiesa di San Nicola a Villa Rossa. L'opera di maggior impegno fu la Leena che si morde la lingua per non parlare con il tiranno Ippia, dipinta nel 1818 (Forlì, Palazzo della Provincia).
