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.


Paganelli Giuseppe*

Bergamo ? - Genova 1822
Attivo a Genova dal 1795, eseguì affreschi (chiese di Santa Maria della Consolazione a Genova e di San Siro a Nervi) e dipinti di soggetto sacro di impronta tardobarocca. Nel 1797 fu nominato accademico di merito della Ligustica e in quell’occasione presentò il dipinto Madonna con S. Gaetano da Thiene e S. Andrea Avellino (Genova, Accademia Ligustica). Nella stessa istituzione diresse la Scuola di Pittura dal 1806 al 1808. Risulterà meno apprezzata la sua opera tarda, connotata da evidenti legami con il classicismo accademico (affreschi della cupola di Santa Maria delle Vigne, Genova, 1816).
