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.


Baldini Vincenzo*

San Miniato al Tedesco (Pisa) 1796 - 1839
Soprattutto affreschista, ottenne un certo prestigio locale come decoratore di chiese e palazzi in gusto neoclassico. In Palazzo Buonaparte-Franchini dipinse a tempera una serie di figure muliebri a monocromo su fondo verde, e nella sala Capitolare del Duomo di San Miniato ritratti di uomini del clero cittadino: Mon-signor Giovanni Mangiadori, Monsignor Andrea Griffoni, Monsignor Lamberto Bonincontri, il Cardinale Andrea Malpighi. Nel 1817 disegnò in dimensioni reali la statua antica di Aiace che sorregge il corpo di Patroclo, conservata sotto le Logge dell'Orcagna a Firenze.
