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.


Beni Annibale*

Gubbio (Perugia) 1764 - 1854
Studiò all'Accademia romana di San Luca, perfezionandosi poi con C. Angelini. Buon ritrattista, come dimostrano alcuni dipinti conservati nel Palazzo Pretorio di Gubbio (Il cardinale Gerolamo della Porta, Pietro Paolucci, Susanna de Maitre), si cimentò anche nei temi religiosi di chiara intonazione purista, con opere destinate a Roma (replica del Beato Leonardo per la chiesa di San Bonaventura) e alla sua città natale dove, fra tutte, sono da ricordare le tre tele per la chiesa di Santa Maria della Piaggiola (Assunzione, Nascita di Maria, Presentazione di Maria al Tempio).
