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.


Varese Gerolamo*

Porto Maurizio 1860 - Genova 1935
Cugino del più noto Luigi, si formò all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Monaco di Baviera sotto la guida di T. Her. Insofferente agli insegnamenti accademici, rientrò in Italia per soggiornare brevemente a Capri e stabilirsi in seguito a Roma dove, dal 1892, comparve alle mostre (Studio dal vero, Impressione, Crepuscolo). Nel 1906 aveva uno studio in via Margutta. Autore di scene di genere e paesaggi (Paesaggio con rovine romane, Imperia, Pinacoteca Civica), nelle sue marine si possono cogliere echi simbolisti di matrice nordica.
