Hippolyte Flandrin Finds

Previously, my only exposure to Hippolyte Flandrin (1809-1864) had been little more than his Naked Young Man Sitting by the Sea, but this past week I found a co

uple of additional examples of his work.


Fydor Bruni

Fydor Bruni (1802-1875) was a Russian born in Italy who returned there after childhood to paint. This particular painting seems a few years ahead of its time in its style in some respects but with some sixteenth century Venetian influences as well.
