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.


Bellini Giovanni*

Fino del Monte (Bergamo) 1815 ca.- Venezia 1871
Ricordato tra il 1831 e il 1832 tra gli allievi della scuola di pittura dell'Accademia Carrara di Bergamo, nel 1836 si trasferiva definitivamente a Venezia. Qui la sua attività, segnata da una forma fedele ai modelli cinquecenteschi blandamente contaminati da spunti puristi, restò inosservata, mentre eseguì diverse tele sacre per committenze bergamasche: tra le altre, una Madonna con bambino (Bergamo, Accademia Carrara ) e I santi Pietro e Paolo dipinti nel 1854 per la Parrocchiale di Castione della Presolana (Bergamo).
