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.


Mascarino Francesco*

Acqui (Alessandria) 1862 - Grottaferrata (Roma) 1944
Laureato in legge, seguì all’Accademia Albertina di Torino i corsi di A. Fontanesi, frequentò M. Calderini e C. Pollonera e fu amico di A. Tavernier. A Roma si avvicinò a N. Costa, abbandonando le influenze fontanesiane per una tecnica diversa, sensibile al disegno e al colore brillante. Espose alle mostre romane nel 1890 (Canal Sisto a Terracina) e nel 1900 (Meriggio e Mattino). Dopo il rientro a Torino, aderì al Futurismo, tornando in seguito alla pittura di paesaggio elaborata, con equilibrio personale, fra tradizione e avanguardia.
