Hermann David Salomon Corrodi (1844-1905) was a major Italian Orientalist whose patrons included the British Royal family and the Kaiser of Germany.  In 1873, he was awarded a Gold medal at the Vienna Universal Exhibition.  Corrodi exhibited frequently in London; in 1881 « Storm in the desert, Egypt » was presented at The Royal Academy.  His fame rapidly grew.  He received many prizes and honours in Europe and exhibited in London, Paris, Munich, Vienna and Rome. 

His subject material included Egyptian landscapes and ancient buildings, market and street scenes.  His works are characterized by their invention, atmosphere, illuminating effects and colours.

Corrodi made numerous visits to Egypt, Constantinople, Montenegro, Syria, and to the Middle-East.  He would return back to his studio in Rome where he would paint many of his works based from his detailed travel sketches and drawings.

The two paintings ‘Resting before the Temple of Karnak’ and ‘Sunset by the Nile’ are very fine examples of Corrodi’s work.   Moreover, it is rare to present a set of pictures by Corrodi of identical dimensions, the paintings were conceived as a complimentary pair.
