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.


Muzzarini Luigi*

Reggio nell'Emilia 1836 - 1862
Allievo di P. Minghetti, si trasferì prima a Modena, dove studiò sotto L. Asioli, poi a Firenze. Nella sua brevissima carriera artistica si dedicò a temi religiosi e mitologici: alla Mostra dell’Incoraggiamento di Modena del 1854-1856 inviò un San Giovanni Battista e a quella del 1857-1862 presentò un Orfeo, cono-sciuto attraverso l'incisione che fu pubblicata nell'album della Società. Una pala con Santa Elisabetta è conservata nella chiesa dei Cappuccini di Reggio.
