David Salomon Corrodi (July 1844 - 30 January 1905) was
an Italian painter.
Corrodi was born in Frascati (an alternate source lists
his birthplace as Zurich) and lived for many years in
Rome. Corrodi studied at the Academy of St Luke under
his father, Salomon Corrodi (1810 - 1892) and in Paris
(1872). He received commissions for history paintings
from the British royal family and was acquainted with
most of the European royalty of the time, including a
friendship with Queen Victoria and traveled widely in
the Far East, including Egypt, Syria, Cyprus and
Istanbul, which provided the subject matter for many of
his paintings. He is the brother of Arnold Corrodi.
Originally a landscape painter in the academic style,
much of his work is also typical of the Orientalism
style of the 19th century. In 1893 he was knighted as an
Academic of Merit by the Academy of St Luke, where he
had been a professor. He died in Rome on 30 January
Corrodi's work is in the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, WA,
the Dahesh Museum of Art in New York, Qatar National
Museum, and Museo di Roma in Trastevere.
