Description
Español: Karl Briulov visitó Pompeya en 1828, y en esa oportunidad realizó bocetos representando la erupción del Monte Vesubio del año 79 d.C. ; la pintura hecha por el artista en base a estos bocetos, recibió muchos elogios en la exposición realizada en Roma, aportando a Briullov más aclamación y reconocimiento que el que pudiera haber recibido por cualquier otra obra suya. Esa fue la primera obra de arte rusa que causó tanto interés en el extranjero, inspirando un poema antológico de Alexander Pushkin, así como la novela "Los últimos días de Pompeya" de Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Así se ha desarrollado un tema clásico, aunque incluyendo características del romanticismo tal como se lo ha manifestado en el arte ruso, al abarcar el drama, el realismo templado (mezclado) con el idealismo, el interés por la naturaleza, y la afición por los temas históricos. Un autorretrato se presenta en la esquina superior izquierda de esta pintura, bajo el campanario, aunque no es fácil de ubicar e identificar.
English: Briullov visited Pompeii in 1828 and made sketches depicting the AD 79 Vesuvius eruption. The painting received rapturous reviews at its exhibition in Rome and brought Briullov more acclaim than any other work during his lifetime. The first Russian artwork to cause such an interest abroad, it inspired an anthologic poem by Alexander Pushkin, and the novel The Last Days of Pompeii by Edward Bulwer-Lytton. It depicts a classical topic but exhibits characteristics of Romanticism as manifested in Russian art, including drama, realism tempered with idealism, interest in nature, and a fondness for historical subjects. A self portrait is in the upper left corner of the painting, under the steeple, but not easy to identify.
