Vittorio Matteo Corcos (Leghorn 1859 - Florence 1933). Born in Leghorn on 4 October 1859, in the 1870's Corcos studied at the Accademia delle Belle Arti di Firenze under Enrico Pollastrini. Between 1878 and 1879 he was in Naples at Domenico Morelli's studio whose work, rich in literary associations and formal ideas made a great impression on him. A work that illustrates Morelli's influence, Arabo in preghiera (The Praying Arab), dates from this period.
