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.


Leidi Giuseppe*

Bergamo 1824 - 1870
Allievo dal 1835 di G. Diotti all'Accademia Carrara di Bergamo, passò poi sotto la guida di E. Scuri. Benché sull'artista ci sia un’ampia documentazione, non si conoscono sue opere certe. Pittore di storia, nel 1851 compariva all’Esposizione dell’Accademia bergamasca con II conte Ugolino nella torre di Pisa e Dante nell'Inferno svenuto dopo il racconto di Francesca da Rimini, presentandosi l’anno seguente con Gli ultimi momenti di Rosmunda (riproposto anche a Milano, alla Mostra braidense del 1854).
