Salomon Corrodi was born in Fehraltorf, Switzerland. He was the tenth child of a minister. In his teens he gained an apprenticeship with the landscape painter Johann Jakob Wetzel (1781-1834). In 1832, aged 22, Corrodi travelled to Rome to join the considerable community of artists from across Europe, living and working in the city. He settled in Rome permanently and became well-known for his landscape views, particularly those of Rome, Venice and Florence. Corrodi achieved considerable success during his lifetime, gaining the patronage of both Tsar Nicholas I of Russia and the British Royal family. He died in Como, northern Italy, on route to his native Switzerland at the age of 82.
