Karl Pavlovich Bryullov referred to by his friends as „The Great Karl”, was a Russian painter. He is regarded as a key figure in transition from the Russian neoclassicism to romanticism.

His best-known work, The Last Day of Pompeii (1830–1833), is a vast composition compared by Pushkin and Gogol to the best works of Rubens and Van Dyck. It created a sensation in Italy and established Briullov as one of the finest European painters of his day.
