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.


Cernivez Franco*

Trieste 1876 - 1923
Di famiglia modesta, si formò artisticamente da autodidatta e solo per un breve periodo frequentò l'Accademia del Nudo presso il Circolo Artistico Triestino del quale divenne socio del 1908. Scultore, scenografo e caricaturista (Caricatura di Ugo Flumiani, Trieste, Museo Civico di Storia e Arte), oltre che pittore, nei paesaggi cercò di conciliare il realismo con le esigenze di un’accentuata espressività e nei numerosi ritratti (Autoritratto, Trieste, Museo Revoltella) percepì l’influsso del manierismo impressionistico di matrice tedesca di U. Veruda e di A. Fittke.
