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.


Toro Carmine*

Napoli 1861 - 1911
Compì la propria formazione a Napoli sotto la guida di G. Toma e D. Morelli e dipinse ritratti (Ritratti dei Reali d'Italia, Summonte, Municipio), scene di genere e affreschi di soggetto religioso. Esordì alla Promotrice partenopea nel 1883 (Senza rimorsi); nel 1888 inviò Affranta e nel 1890 Tornano i fiori (Napoli, coll. Banco di Napoli), tema poetico realizzato con sicurezza di tocco e che risente dell’intimismo malinco-nico di G. Toma. Espose ancora fino al 1904 (1891, La vigilia di S. Giovanni; 1892, Più nulla!; 1897, In soffitta; 1904, Pax in simbulo).
