Cortese was a painter of suggestive light effects at dawn or dusk over Classical ruins. He was active in Naples, Rome and Paris.

The three ancient Greek temples of Paestum (circa 550 – circa 450 BC) rank amongst the best preserved from Antiquity. They were discovered only some 125 years before Cortese painted them.
