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.


Zasso Giuliano*

Castellavazzo (Belluno) 1833 - Venezia 1889
Tra i pochi dati noti riguardanti questo pittore, si conoscono la frequentazione dell’Accademia di Venezia, a partire dal 1853 e un’esperienza romana, probabilmente come titolare del pensionato accademico, testimoniata da un saggio presentato a Venezia nel 1864 (I primi genitori tentati da Satana e difesi dagli angeli); è anche nota l’attività di docente nella cattedra del Nudo presso l’Accademia veneziana. Il suo San Giovanni Evangelista della parrocchiale di Castellavazzo risente compositivamente e formalmente della lezione di M. Grigoletti.
