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.


Gorra Giulio *

Cremona 1832 - Torino 1884
Allievo di E. Scuri all’Accademia Carrara di Bergamo, dopo essersi unito alle file garibaldine, esordì all’Esposizione di Milano del 1860 con un paesaggio (La Dara in Brianza, Milano, Accademia di Brera) e con alcune tele ispirate alle recenti campagne militari. In seguito si mantenne fedele a un paesaggismo animato da figurine rustiche e comparve regolarmente all’appuntamento braidense fino al 1884, con soggetti agresti (1867, La merenda dei mietitori, Cacciatori nelle paludi del Po) e vedute (1878, Una bella giornata di marzo, Milano, Accademia di Brera).
