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.


Giuria Pietro*

Savona 1816 - Genova 1876
Frequentò lo studio di A. Oxilia a Savona e poi quello di A. Augero a Torino. Gli interessi per la letteratura italiana e straniera lo influenzarono nella scelta di soggetti d’ispirazione romantica, di preferenza ambientati in paesaggi burrascosi (Camoens salva dal naufragio il manoscritto I Lusiandi, 1869, Savona, Pinacoteca Civica; Lido solitario, 1871, Genova Nervi, Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna; L’annegata, 1873; Perseo e Danae in balia del mare, esposto a Genova nel 1873). Con tali soggetti e con più rari temi di genere partecipò alla Promotrice genovese dal 1851 al 1875 e a quella torinese dal 1863 al 1876. Fu critico d’arte per L’Arte moderrna e La Gazzetta piemontese.
