Red Hair in Art: Vittorio Matteo Corcos

Vittorio Matteo Corcos (1859 - 1933) was an Italian painter, known for his portraits. Many of his genre works depict winsome and finely dressed young men and women, in moments of repose and recreation.

He painted portraits of Emperor William II and members of the German monarchy, Benito Mussolini, Countess Annina Morosini, Countess Nerina Volpi di Misurata, poet Giosuè Carducci, composers Puccini and Mascagni, Queen Amélie of Portugal and Princess of Orleans.

In 1913, his self-portrait was accepted by the Uffizi museum.
