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.

Studiò all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze dal 1824 al 1835, anno in cui vinse il pensionato triennale a Roma, che si concluse nel 1839. Da Roma inviò come saggi Achille che piange Briseide, Una donna anconetana offre il suo latte ad un soldato morente e infine Raffaello parte dalla casa paterna per andare a studiare a Perugia. Tornato in Toscana, prese a esporre all'Accademia fiorentina temi di storia rinascimentale, cari alla poetica purista. Intanto svolse l’attività di copista nelle gallerie fiorentine.
