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.


Ragusa Eleonora*

Tokyo 1861 - 1941
Allieva dello scultore V. Ragusa all’epoca in cui egli soggiornava in Giappone, lo seguì poi a Palermo, divenendo sua moglie. In continuo confronto con la pittura occidentale di stampo verista, dipinse ritratti, fiori, soggetti religiosi; facilitata dalla conoscenza dell’arte decorativa orientale, divenne sensibile interprete del gusto liberty. La sua attività si svolse interamente nel capoluogo siciliano, dove si distinse anche nel campo delle arti applicate. All’Esposizione Nazionale di Palermo del 1891 fu premiata per Ha preso il volo, La notte dell'Ascensione, Villa Giulia.
