Karl Pavlovich Bryullov (12  December 1799, Saint Petersburg — 11  June 1852, Manziana, Italy) was a Russian painter, muralist, watercolorist, and representative of academism.
K. p. Bryullov's work became the peak of late Russian romanticism, when the sense of harmonious integrity and beauty of the world was replaced by a sense of tragedy and conflict in life, an interest in strong passions, unusual themes and situations. The historical picture is again brought to the fore, but now its main theme is not the struggle of heroes, as in classicism, but the fate of huge human masses.
In his Central work "the Last day of Pompeii" (1830-1833), Brullov combined dramatic action, romantic lighting effects and sculptural, classically perfect plastic figures. The painting brought the artist great fame both in Russia and in Europe.
