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.


Vinelli Felice*

Genova 1771 ca. -1825
Iscrittosi nel 1787 all’Accademia Ligustica di Genova, allievo di C. G. Ratti e, forse, di C. Baratta, nel 1809 vi fu nominato socio di merito e dal 1818 al 1820 diresse la Scuola di Pittura. Pur legato alla tradizione locale (Riposo in Egitto, Genova, chiesa di N. S. delle Vigne; Virtù teologali, Genova, chiesa di San Giorgio), guardò agli esempi del Neoclassicismo internazionale, che acquisì in una dimensione tarda, caratterizzata da suggestioni moderatamente preromantiche (Paride ferito, Genova, Accademia Ligustica).
