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.


Beda Francesco *

Trieste 1840 - 1900
Studiò all’Accademia di Vienna dove, entrato nel 1858, fu allievo di K. von Blaas. Trattò soggetti storici (Ambasciatori veneti da Carlo VI, Trieste, Museo Revoltella) e di genere (Uno spiacevole incidente nello studio del pittore, esposto alla Promotrice di Torino nel 1879). Viaggiò molto nei paesi dell'impero austroungarico dove si fece notare come ritrattista: in questo genere (Il concertino, 1873, Trieste, Museo Civico di Storia e Arte) si avvalse di un rigoroso impianto disegnativo e di una stesura pittorica brillante. Fu tra i promotori del Circolo Artistico triestino.
