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.


Sacchetto Giovanni Maria*

Padova 1867 - Peraga (Padova) 1921
Si formò all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Monaco di Baviera, dove visse per una decina d'anni; in seguito soggiornò a Roma, entrando a far parte dell’ambiente artistico della capitale grazie all’amicizia con G. A. Sartorio. Si dedicò al paesaggio (Cantuccio romito, Pace della sera, esposti a San Pietroburgo nel 1902) e al tema sacro (Testa di Cristo, esposto a Torino nel 1899), ma ottenne commissioni soprattutto per i ritratti (Ritratto di S. E. il Conte De Foresta, esposto a Venezia nel 1903; Sua Santità Pio X, Vaticano, palazzi Apostolici).
