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.


Zardo Alberto *

Padova 1876 - Firenze 1959
Frequentò l'Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze ed esordì alla Mostra della Promotrice fiorentina nel 1896. Si dedicò a temi domestici, in sintonia con la poetica coeva di G. Pascoli (La convalescente, esposto a Milano nel 1898) e a paesaggi di respiro simbolista (Pomeriggio, Notte d'inverno, Idillio, esposti a Firenze nel 1905). Dai primi anni del nuovo secolo lavorò come illustratore e nel 1901 vinse il primo premio al concorso Alinari per la Divina Commedia. In seguito si dedicò anche a temi devozionali.
