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.


Oreggia Tommaso*

Porto Maurizio 1824 - 1874
Grazie alla protezione del conte T. Littardi poté trasferirsi a studiare a Roma. Qui, nel 1843, su commissione comunale, eseguì il dipinto I Santi Luigi e Filippo Neri in contemplazione della Vergine (Imperia, Pinacoteca Civica), destinato alla cappella del collegio municipale di Porto Maurizio (oggi Imperia). L’opera, apprezzata per il composto purismo e lodata dal conterraneo L. Massabò, gli valse numerose commissioni per le chiese dell’entroterra. Nel periodo romano collaborò agli affreschi della volta di Santa Maria sopra Minerva (1850 ca.), poi parzialmente rifatti.
