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.


Zenoni Francesco*

Bergamo 1828 - Lecco 1890
Formatosi presso l’Accademia Carrara di Bergamo come allievo di E. Scuri, nel 1847 esordì con tre Ritratti e un Autoritratto; ancora con quadri di figura ottenne riconoscimenti ai concorsi accademici (Un fanciullo in atto d'osservazione, 1852; Testa di vecchio, 1853). Distintosi in seguito come pittore di storia e di soggetti sacri, nel 1858 espose a Brera una Sacra Famiglia, seguita nel 1862 da Una scena dell'inquisizione in Spagna e un Ritratto di S. M, il re Vittorio Emanuele.
