For the first time in Russia there is presented the Italian Album by K.Brullov that consists of 33 drawings and water-colors including the paper with the artist's dedication to the countess Stefania Vitgenshtein. These drawings and water-colors that were created at the end of the 1820’s – beginning of the 1830’s may be regarded as another evidence of the artist’s passion for the Italian genre motifs and his close and attentive study of nature. In 1993 the Italian Album by K.Brullov was bought by the Stolichniy Bank in England from Alexander Sain-Vitgenshtein-Sain. Since 2010 this album belongs to the Closed-end Mutual Investment Fund of Art Objects “Atlanta art”.
