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.


Galli Edoardo *

Napoli 1854 - dopo il 1915
Allievo di A. Licata e poi di D. Morelli, fu abile e forte ritrattista (Ritratto del pittore Puccinelli, Roma, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna), ma dipinse anche paesaggi e scene di genere ispirate al folclore partenopeo. Fu presente alle mostre della Promotrice napoletana fra il 1880 e il 1911: il dipinto Innamorati (o II bacio, Napoli, Palazzo del Comune) fu apprezzato da F. Netti alla Mostra del 1886. Espose fra l’altro a Genova dal 1882 al 1895 (Le infilaperle a Venezia), a Milano dal 1882 al 1906 (1884, Le nostre biricchine e A Posillipo), a Roma nel 1883 (Un demonio di modella) e a Venezia nel 1887 (Quod superest date pauperibus).
