"The Last Day of Pompeii" is a painting by Russian artist Karl Brullov, created in 1827-1833. It is a large scale work, measuring approximately 11 by 15 feet, and depicts the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, which destroyed the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. The painting features a dramatic and chaotic scene, with people of all social classes, including slaves, frantically trying to escape the city as it crumbles around them. The central figure is a young Christian couple who, according to the artist, symbolize the triumph of love and faith over disaster. The work is considered a masterpiece of 19th-century Russian art and is notable for its powerful, emotional impact and meticulous attention to historical detail.
