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.


Paparo Emanuele*

Monteleone (Catanzaro) 1779 - 1828
Studiò a Napoli e in seguito a Roma dove, fra il 1806 e il 1808, fu allievo di V. Camuccini. Verso il 1815 tornò in patria ed eseguì per le chiese locali un cospicuo numero di opere devozionali, nelle quali si avverte il riferimento alla lezione classicista del maestro (La cena del Redentore). Le fonti ricordano anche la sua attività di ritrattista, sorretta da un'attenta perizia disegnativa (Autoritratto, 1815; Ritratto di Fortunato Morani, 1820). Sue opere comparvero alla I Mostra d’Arte Calabrese, nel 1912.
