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.

Roma 1776 - 1846
Appartenne a una nota famiglia di pittori originaria di Cavalese (Tirolo) che, trasferitasi a Roma nel 1854 ca., acquistò con Christoph (1732 - 1798) un posto di rilievo nell'ambiente romano. L’artista si formò con P. Benvenuti all’Accademia di San Luca, dove si conservano tre suoi dipinti a olio (Gentiluomo che pre-senta ad un vescovo la pianta di una chiesa, Diana ed Endimione, Perseo ed Andromeda). Nella chiesa Arcipretale di Cavalese sono di sua mano L'Assunzione di Maria e i Quattro Evangelisti del presbiterio.
