Sold out

Original painting by Franca Corcos (Franca Brusca Benvenuta Corcos).


Franca was an Italian artist (1910-1980), who is said to have attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence from 1929, and is known to have exhibited in important Florentine exhibitions in 1935.

During a period where Franca travelled between Paris and North Africa, exhibitions in Algeria, Morocco, Paris, and Italy between 1945 and 1954 showed the artist's work.

In 1953 at the Donatello Apert Exhibition in Florence, her painting, 'Barca sur Fiume' was purchased by the Gallery of Modern Art.
