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.


Angeloni Lucio*

Perugia 1841 - 1871
Di nobile famiglia, frequentò per un decennio (1855-1865) le lezioni di S. Valeri all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Perugia, dove ancora si conservano l'Autoritratto (1855 ca.) e un dipinto raffigurante Giuseppe Garibaldi (1862 ca.). Reiterati tributi alla pittura di storia, in linea con la diffusa retorica didascalico-celebrativa, furono presentati dall’artista alle esposizioni umbre dal 1865 al 1870. Tra queste opere, oggi tutte introvabili, ebbe particolare apprezzamento la tela con Cristoforo Colombo dinanzi alla regina Isabella di Spagna.
