I see something common with Karl Brullov's paintings :)

Yes indeed, this Biedermeier style was very much an international one, and Brullov (I never know the correct spelling) produced some of the finest portraits in particular, I especially like the first one here:

There is rather a good blog which is full of stuff of this kind (I think I stole the present picture from there!):

Yes. Maybe, it would be better Bryullov...

Someone told me that each Bryullov's picture has a binding red stain. As I see that, seems, it is a common rule for Biedermeier style.

Romantic :)

Love the colours and how the light falls in this painting.

It's a nice shade of blue; from the before the time of synthetic dyes!
