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.


Bernini Massimo Giulia*

Attiva a Roma fra il 1806 e il 1818
Non si hanno molte notizie sulla pittrice dilettante Giulia dei conti Massimo, sposa del cavaliere Francesco Bernini, discendente del grande scultore e architetto Gian Lorenzo e che, nel 1806, fu nominata accademica di merito dellAccademia di San Luca su istanza dei pittori G. Landi, G. Wicar e F. Manno. L’Autoritratto, dipinto e donato all’Accademia, come era uso dopo la nomina, si conserva ancora presso l’istituto romano. Due sue opere, di attenuato classicismo, sono nella chiesa di Sant’Andrea delle Fratte a Roma: Gesù cade per la terza volta (IX stazione della Via Crucis) e la pala con l'Ecce Homo.
