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.


Gallino Gaetano *

Genova 1804 - 1884
Nella sua città frequentò lo studio di S. Tagliafichi e dal 1814 i corsi di F. Alessio all'Accademia Ligustica. Simpatizzante mazziniano, nel 1833 riparò a Montevideo dove poté conoscere Garibaldi ed eseguire diversi ritratti del generale (due versioni, del 1841 e del 1848, al Museo del Risorgimento di Genova) e della moglie (Ritratto di Anita Garibaldi, 1845, Milano, Museo del Risorgimento). La tradizione vuole che sia stato l’ideatore della celebre camicia rossa garibaldina. Ritornato a Genova e affermatosi come ritrattista, espose dal 1851 al 1876 alle mostre della Promotrice.
