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.


Palazzi Gaetano*

Bologna 1830 ca. - 1892
Sono poche le notizie relative a questo artista, che si presentò al concorso accademico di Bologna del 1847 con un soggetto storico-letterario. Più tardi preferì temi legati alla vita popolare contadina (Il ritorno dalla Cresima- costume della campagna Bolognese, esposto a Torino nel 1871; La Nonna e la nipotina, L'asso di briscola, esposti a Roma nel 1883). Da non confondere con l'omonimo artista toscano (Arezzo 1810 - Firenze 1862), specializzato nell'attività incisoria e che dal 1847 fu conservatore dei disegni e delle stampe presso le gallerie fiorentine.
