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.

Firenze 1850 ca. - Arezzo 1919
Frequentata l'Accademia fiorentina, si trasferì ad Arezzo dove rimase definitivamente. Esordiente, presentò alle mostre fiorentine temi di storia in costume d’ispirazione letteraria (1870, L'istituzione della Fraternità ad Arezzo; 1871, Lisa di Niccolò de' Lapi impazzita per Troilo); in seguito preferì i soggetti di genere, che espose con regolarità, fino al 1885, alle mostre delle promotrici di Firenze, Genova e Torino. Nel 1888 prese parte all'Esposizione Italiana di Londra con Making it up e A tender adieu.
