Seated Male Nude
Domenico Corvi, Italian, 1721 - 1803
Corvi was awarded a first prize for drawing in a competition at the Accademia di San Luca in his adopted city of Rome at age twenty-nine, and in the course of his slowly prospering career as a portraitist and history painter he became known for his astute rendering of the human figure. He taught nude drawing at the Accademia del Nudo in Rome and his painted compositions verify his close attention to accurate and inventive poses and gestures.
