The Partnership of Traveling Art Exhibitions(briefly: Peredvizhnikior the The Wanderers) is an association of Russian artists. Established: 1863. Date of liquidation: 1923.
The work of K. P. Bryullov became the pinnacle of late Russian romanticism, when a sense of harmonious integrity and beauty of the world was replaced by a sense of tragedy and conflict of life, an interest in strong passions, unusual topics and situations.
The historical picture is again coming to the forefront, but now its main theme is not the struggle of heroes, as in classicism, but the fate of huge human masses.
An outstanding master of both ceremonial and chamber portraits, Bryullov made evolutionary for the era of romanticism in his work – from the joyful acceptance of the life of early works (“The Horsewoman”, 1832) to the complicated psychology of the later ones (Self-Portrait, 1848), anticipating the achievement of the second masters half a century, for example, such as I. E. Repin.
Bryullov had a huge influence on Russian artists, among whom he had many followers and imitators.
Karl Pavlovich Bryullov died at the age of 52, in the town of Manziananear Rome, where he was treated with mineral waters.
On the monument of the sculptor M. O. Mikeshin“Millennium of Russia”, set in Novgorodin 1862, K. P. Bryullov is depicted among 16 figures of writers and artists of the Russian state from ancient times to the middle of the XIX century.
