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.


Comastri Vincenzo*

Attivo a Cagliari fra il 1826 e il 1833
Le uniche notizie sul Comastri si hanno dalle fonti ottocentesche che ne documentano la presenza a Cagliari fra il 1826 e il 1833: delle opere citate ci resta solo la grande tela II cuore di Maria (oggi nella Parrocchiale di Sant'Eulalia a Cagliari), eseguita per la chiesa di Santa Teresa. Nel 1826 l'artista risultava segnalato fra i decoratori del Palazzo Viceregio; nel 1833 realizzò un dipinto raffigurante Sant'Ignazio alla Storta per la chiesa di Santa Teresa e la Madonna con Bambino per la chiesa gesuitica di San Michele.
