Briullov's Italian Midday (1827).

Born of Italian parents in St Petersburg, Carlo Brullo (as his name was spelled until 1822) felt drawn to Italy from early years. Despite his education at the Imperial Academy of Arts (1809-1821) Briullov never fully embraced the Classical style taught by his mentors and promoted by his own brother, Alexander Brullov. After distinguishing himself as a promising and imaginative student and finishing his education, he left Russia for Rome. Here he worked until 1835 as a portraitist and genre painter, though his fame as an artist came when he got involved in historical painting. ImageMetadata File history File links Brullov. ...
