Description:
Vittorio Matteo Corcos (Livorno 1859–1933 Florence) Portrait of Princess Evelyne Colonna di Stigliano, signed, dated V. Corcos 1902, oil on canvas, 194x145cm, framed, (GG) Provenance: Finarte Milan, 20 April 2005, lot 132; Private Collection Italy. The present lot features the American Evelyn Julie O\‘Bryant-Mackay (1861-1919), the adopted daughter of entrepreneur John Mackay, who made a tremendous fortune discovering silver mines in Nevada. Evelyn was born in Downieville in Sierra Nevada and later moved to Europe. In 1885 in Paris she married the Neapolitan Ferdinando Colonna di Stigliano (1858-1926), who came from an old Italian aristocratic family. The marriage produced three children: Andrea (1885-1943), Bianca (1887-1944) and Marcantonio (1889-1921). Like many aristocrats of the Belle Époque attracted by the mild climate and natural beauty of the Ligurian coast, Evelyn Colonna spent many years in Santa Margherita Ligure, where she ultimately died in 1919. She was president of the Italian Red Cross. During the First World War, she devoted herself with dedication and generous donations to the construction of a hospital in Santa Margherita Ligure.

Description:
PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION, JAPAN Vittorio Matteo Corcos ITALIAN THE THREE ACES Vittorio Matteo Corcos signed V. Corcos and dated 91. (upper left) oil on canvas 43 3/4 by 31 1/2 in. 111.1 by 80 cm Provenance Provenance Sale: Sotheby Parke-Bernet, New York, May 14, 1976, lot 221, illustrated Richard Green, London Acquiredin Tokyo circa 2000 Catalogue Note Originally fromthe Italian port city of Livorno, Vittorio Matteo Corcos showed his aptitude as an artist from a young age. At sixteen he was admitted into an advanced position at Florence\’s Academia di Belle Arti, followed by study in Naples with the artist Domenico Morelli, who encouraged his move to Paris in 1880. Upon arriving in Paris, Corcos quickly introduced himself to the Italian expatriate artists Giuseppe de Nittis and Giovanni Boldini. Both artists would influence Corcos greatly, and De Nittis hosted regular salons whichallowed Corcos to meet such luminaries as Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Gustave Caillebotte and, perhaps most consequentially, his dealer, Adolphe Goupil. By 1891, the year The Three Aceswas painted, Corcos had returned to Italy with an established reputation and a Parisian dealer. Goupil was a savvy commercial enterprise, and decorative prints and paintings of enticing young women was one of their specialties. In a recent review of the Corcos retrospective at the Palazzo Zabarella in Padua, Roderick Conway Morris describes whatThe Three Aces makes evident:"technical skillsinreproducing luxurious women\’s fashions and the milky-white and subtly blushing complexions of the young ladies wearing them made him an ideal supplier… Corcos was also adept at infusing these paintings with a fresh-faced sexuality without exceeding the bounds of bourgeois decorum, and Goupil admiringly described him as a painter who was 'chastely impure;" (Morris, "A Reassessment of Corcos, Sensuality and Subtlety Intact,"New York Times, October 7, 2014). While Corcos enjoyed wide artistic acclaim and great financial success in his lifetime, his contributions to art during the Belle Époque remain somewhat overlooked outside of his native Italy. He had a reputation for being the "peintres des jolies femmes" (a moniker given to him byThe Timescorrespondent Henri De Blowitz that followed him for his entire career), but he also produced an idiosyncratic body of work which includes psychologically rich interpretations of the world and people around him.

Description:
Vittorio Matteo Corcos (Livorno 1859–1933 Florence) Dis-mois tout! signed, dated V. Corcos (18)83, oil on canvas, 93x60cm, framed, (GG) Provenance: Acquired by Theo van Gogh for Goupil & Cie, which renamed itself Boussod, Valadon & Cie in 1884, Paris; Charles Field Haseltine (1840-1915) Philadelphia; Acquired by the grandfather of the current owner in the 1960s; Private Collection, Italy. Corcos was working for the French art dealer Adolphe Goupil when the present lot was painted in 1883. Goupil and Co. was founded in 1861 and later renamed after Goupil\’s two sons in law, Boussod and Valadon. The present painting was acquired by Theo van Gogh, Vincent\’s brother, for the Goupil gallery, along with its counterpart, entitled \“Nous verrons!\”. The two paintings are the same size, and were subsequently sold to the American dealer Charles Field Haseltine. In 1884, the gallery Boussod, Valadon & Cie created colour reproductions of the two paintings so that they could reach a larger audience. As a result, Corcos attained international exposure among the growing group of wealthy American collectors visiting Paris. Corcos studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and in Naples under Domenico Morelli. He lived in Paris from 1880 until 1886. There he met Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas and the Italian expatriates Giuseppe De Nittis and Giovanni Boldini, who would influence him greatly. He signed a fifteen-year contract with Goupil, who sold many of his pictures to European and American collectors. He quickly established himself as the \“peintre des jolies femmes\”. His Parisian period can be considered to be his best. In the present lot, Corcos captures these two young beauties in a moment of emotion. A young lady is looking at the distant boat which is taking away her beloved, while her friend holds her hand. They are magnificently dressed in clothes of the Belle Époque style.
