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.

Formatosi all'Accademia Albertina di Torino, fu pittore di genere con inflessioni romantiche, adottando anche modi della pittura secentesca per ottenere effetti di colorita verosimiglianza. Partecipò alla Promotrice di Torino nel 1884 con Regalo alla fidanzata, Progetto di matrimonio, Ermengarda, La questione decisa, Viva il re. Precocemente scomparso, nel 1892 comparvero all’Esposizione Retrospettiva per il Cinquantenario della Promotrice i suoi dipinti Frate che medica i denti ad un guerriero (1881), Tuffolina (1883), Dolori intimi (1884).
