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.


Lavezzari Silvio*

Attivo a Milano fra il 1864 e il 1874
Artista pressoché sconosciuto a tutt'oggi, fu assiduo a Milano alle esposizioni braidensi dal 1864 e per tutto il decennio seguente: oltre a tele di soggetto militare (1867, Un avamposto di bersaglieri volontari: episodio della campagna del Tirolo del 1866) espose quadri di genere, prediligendo scenette lombarde (1869, Una baruffa: costumi brianzoli). Sue opere comparvero anche alla Mostra di Torino (1871, Sartine in una giornata di sciopero) e a quella di Firenze (1873, Una signora vestita di carità).
