Challenge #6 in the Real reality series. Hosted by ForrestGump.
Challenge has finished
VIttorio Matteo Corcos was an Italian painter (1859 - 1933) who dedicated himself to portrait. He also had some experience with former cameras, in his late days. His portraits ranged from "headshot" to "environmental portrait", but all of them are recognizable - as he himself told - for his obsession for eyes and small details. Her women are usually young, innocent without looking naive, quite formal yet subtly sensual. His men are formal patriarchs, but they don't forget they're fathers before being leaders, they're wiser than severe. Input "corcos ritratti" in Google, and you find a lot of sample images...just let me address you to "Sogni"; "Lina Cavalieri" and "Paolina Clelia Bonin" for female portraits and to "Emilio Treves", "Giuseppe Garibaldi" and "Autoritratto" for men portraits
