From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Son of Haydn Corri, a professor of music and organist at Marlborough Street Church, who died in 1860, and grandson of Domenico Corri, a native of Rome who settled in England and was well-known as a musician and composer. Valentine Corri was trained in the Dublin Society's Drawing School and began to exhibit in the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1849. He continued as a fairly constant exhibitor, but never attained to any importance as an artist, supporting himself chiefly by teaching. He resided all his life in Queen's Square, and died there on 1st August, 1889. He was buried at Glasnevin. He married in 1860 Annie Parker, an actress in the stock company of the Queen's Theatre, Dublin, who died on 4th August, 1870. He had four brothers, all connected with music or the stage - Henry, an opera singer and manager for many years of an English opera company of his own, who died in 1888; Eugene Dussek, an opera singer, who died in 1870; Rupert, a scene-painter, and Haydn, a baritone singer, who both died in 1876.
