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.


Vanotti Alessandro *

Milano 1852 - Bollate (Milano) 1916
Dopo la laurea in Ingegneria, si volse alla carriera artistica e nel 1885 ottenne il premio Mylius all'Esposizione milanese con II supplizio di Tantalo (Milano, Accademia di Brera). Si accostò alla pittura di paesaggio sotto la guida di A. Formis, ispirandosi spesso ai dintorni di Lecco, mentre a modi di verismo sentimentale si legano le opere presentate alla mostra di Milano del 1892 (Madre di emigranti, Milano, Accademia di Brera) e alla esposizione romana degli Amatori e Cultori del 1895 (Dramma sulle Alpi).
