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.


Amerling Friedrich von *

Vienna 1803 - 1887
Formatosi fra il 1816 e il 1824 all’Accademia di Vienna e poi a quella di Praga, compì in seguito diversi viaggi in Europa e in Italia. Nel 1836 strinse amicizia con G. Molteni dal quale fu poi ospitato più volte, venendo così in contatto con l’ambiente artistico milanese. Tra il 1840 e il 1843 soggiornò a Roma e a Trieste. Rappresentante della corrente romantica austriaca e autore di piccoli dipinti di genere, contribuì alla diffusione del gusto Biedermeier in Italia, lasciandovi anche numerosi ritratti: fra gli altri, quello di F. Hayez, di G. Molteni, di C. Canella (Milano, Galleria d'Arte Moderna) e del pittore Edoard Engerth (Trieste, Museo Revoltella).
