Karl Pavlovich Bryullov (Russian artist, 1799 - 1852)


Karl Pavlovich Briullov, a “Russian painter, portraitist, genrist,” was born in 1799, at the end of neoclassical period in Russia. Despite his education at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, Briullov did not welcome the idea of the return to classicism and, like many other artists, he refused to submit completely to the Academy’s canon. After establishing himself as a promising and talented student, Briullov traveled to Rome, where he worked as a portraitist and a genre painter, until he got involved in historical painting. His most famous work, The Last Day of Pompeii, was warmly accepted by the public, making him overnight one of the best known painters of his time, and a “dictator in Russian Art”
