Briullov, K. P. "Self-Portrait". 1848

Notes: Self-Portrait An archetypal image of the Romantic artist, this self-portrait of 1848 captures the passion and insight which characterize this exceptional nineteenth-century painter. According to contemporaries, Briullov painted this sketch in a few hours while recovering from a long illness.
