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.


Conti Eugenio *

Crema (Cremona) 1842 - Milano 1909
Allievo di E. Scuri presso l’Accademia Carrara di Bergamo, studiò poi con A. Ciseri a Firenze e con C. Mariani a Roma, interrompendo gli studi artistici per militare, nel 1862, nelle fila garibaldine. All’impegno di frescante (tra l'altro, nella decorazione della chiesa di San Giacomo a Crema) affiancò l’interesse per la pittura di storia, meritandosi la medaglia d’oro all'Esposizione braidense del 1868 con Bianca Cappello. Attivo anche come ritrattista, si dedicò in seguito a disimpegnate scene di genere quali II guardaroba della nonna (1885, Museo Civico di Crema).
