Unposted, Italian, artist signed Corbella postcard of a glamorous woman in a phenomenal hat. Front of postcard is in very good vintage condition with minor bumping. Verso of postcard is in fair vintage condition as it was obviously removed from an album at some point with areas of missing paper in both the lower corners from album removal and some light staining in the upper corners.
**Initial scan had a hair on the scanner. See second scan. Thanks!
Tito Corbella (1885-1966) Italian, b. Pontremoli
From Metro Postcards Website
After earning a degree in chemistry at the University of Padua, Corbella changed course and entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. Afterwards he became an illustrator and worked for such notable companies as Ricordi. After 1912 he concentrated more on painting portraits of women and of lovers, of which about 300 were reproduced on postcards. Despite his notoriety of rendering glamorous women, he also produced propaganda cards during World War One. His best known set was published by Inter-Art in 1917, depicting the very mythic death of Nurse Edith Cavell at the hands of the Germans.
