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.


Giorgi Giuseppe*

Romano di Lombardia (Bergamo) 1814 - Bergamo 1886
Allievo dal 1830 al 1844 di G. Diotti all’Accademia Carrara di Bergamo, fu pittore di temi sacri e ritrattista. In numerose Madonne, oggi in collezioni private bergamasche, interpretò in chiave devota le soluzioni formali del Piccio (L'Assunzione di Maria Vergine, esposto a Firenze nel 1861). Nella ritrattistica fu attento anche alla lezione di G. Trécourt, pur senza discostarsi in modo deciso dai precetti accademici (Ritratto di Giovanni Zaccaria Zavaritt, Ritratto di Giuseppe Marinoni, coll. privata).
