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.

Roma 1855 - Firenze 1921
Autodidatta di formazione, dagli anni '80 risiedette a Firenze, cogliendo spunti per paesaggi e studi nella campagna toscana e in Maremma. Nella sua produzione comparvero presto anche temi militari e quadri di animali (Testa di cavallo, esposto a Venezia nel 1887; In avanscoperta, esposto a Milano nel 1889; Trapeli, cavalli di rinforzo per le salite in Toscana, esposto a Milano nel 1890). Intorno al 1890 si cimentò anche con la scultura, esponendo i suoi lavori, oli, bronzi e gessi, alle mostre di Milano (1894, Il 2° squadrone di Ge-nova Cavalleggeri alla Bicocca), Roma (1895-1896), Firenze (1896-1897), San Pietroburgo (1902).
