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.


Terzi Aleardo *

Palermo 1870 - Castelletto Ticino (Novara) 1943
Figlio dell'acquerellista e litografo Andrea (Monreale, Palermo 1848 - Roma 1928), si formò all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Palermo. Nel 1892 si trasferì a Roma, dove collaborò alla rivista La Tribuna Illustrata, continuando a inviare opere nella città natale (Azalea, esposta alla mostra del 1894; Al Mattino, Palermo, Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna). La sua pittura, orientata verso forme liberty e, nella maturità, verso tendenze moderniste, comparve alle mostre romane degli Acquarellisti (1907) e a quelle della Secessione (1913-1916).
