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.


Revera Alessandro*

Castelfranco Veneto (Treviso) 1820 - Venezia 1895
Si formò a Venezia con M. Grigoletti e L. Lipparini. Artista di stampo prettamente accademico, fu abile copista. Fra il 1838 e il 1855 lavorò per diversi committenti: per il pavese G. Redemagni (Ritratto di Camilla Pessina Redemagni, 1840; Ritratto di G. Redemagni, 1849, Pavia, Museo Civico) e per il duca Scotti di Milano (Incontro di Luigi XII con San Francesco di Paola, esposto a Venezia nel 1855). Dipinse anche sog-getti sacri in forme puriste, elaborando esempi della tradizione veneziana: San Pietro dona la vista ai ciechi (1847, chiesa di San Valentino, Castelfranco Veneto), Madonna col Bambino in trono e Santi (parrocchiale di Preganziol), Buon Pastore (chiesa di Santa Maria delle Penitenti, Venezia).
