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.


Baccarlino Giovanni*

Cadarafagno di Breia (Vercelli) 1826 - Borgosesia (Vercelli) 1889
Frequentata la scuola di disegno a Varallo e poi l’Accademia Albertina di Torino, soggiornò per studio a Firenze e a Roma. Per quindici anni visse a Nizza dove si affermò come ritrattista presso la buona società internazionale, ottenendo commissioni in Francia, Gran Bretagna e Stati Uniti. Rientrato a Borgosesia, affiancò al ritratto (Donna Tecla de Laska; Ritratto di ecclesiastico; Varallo, Pinacoteca Civica) la pittura di soggetto sacro, eseguendo dipinti murali in varie chiese della Valsesia e della Liguria; realizzò anche opere su tela (Levita di Efraim, Novara, Galleria P. e A. Giannoni), talvolta connotate da suggestioni puriste derivate dai Nazareni.
