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.


Nappi Sigismondo*

Milano 1804 - 1832
Formatosi con L. Sabatelli presso la milanese Accademia di Brera e alla scuola di P. Palagi, nel 1823 fu premiato all'Esposizione braidense per la composizione disegnata La morte di Geta. Nel 1826, La partenza di Attilio Regolo per Cartagine (Milano, Pinacoteca di Brera), tela fedele al classicismo di Palagi, valeva al-l'artista il gran premio di Pittura. Alla Mostra accademica del 1829 espose un Ritratto; con la Morte di Baiardo, apparso postumo nel 1832, si chiudeva la sua breve vicenda artistica.
