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.


Reinhart Heinrich*

Vienna 1829 - Santa Bona (Treviso) 1914
Si formò a Vienna con J. von Führich e nel 1850 si recò a Venezia, dove frequentò l'Accademia di Belle Arti e strinse amicizia con V. Nobile e A. Gunard. Dal 1874 si trasferì a Treviso e prese residenza in una villa a Santa Bona, dove trasse ispirazione per le sue scene campestri (Scuderia, Paesaggio campestre, Villa di Santa Bona, Treviso). Le sue opere, a olio e ad acquerello, comparvero spesso alle mostre di Vienna (1858, Chiesa di S. Antonio a Padova; 1865, Ragazza veneziana, Cavalli). Nei dipinti di soggetto sacro adottò forme neopuriste (Santi, 1898, chiesa dei Carmelitani Scalzi, Treviso; Il Buon Pastore, chiesa delle Canossiane, Treviso).
