original name Charles Bruleau , Bryullov also spelled Briullov, Bryulov, Brülov, Brüllov , or Brülow Russian painter who combined technical proficiency and classical academic training with a Romantic spontaneity to produce some of the liveliest examples of Russian art of the period.

Bryullov was descended from French Huguenots, and his father was a sculptor. (The family name was Russified in 1821.) Bryullov was educated at the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts (1809–21). He studied in Italy from 1823, painting his best-known work, the monumental “Last Day of Pompeii” (1830–33), while there; it brought him an international reputation. Though he painted other large canvases with historical subjects, none was as successful as“ Pompeii.” Much of his continuing reputation rests on his more intimate portraits and his watercolours and travel sketches.
