Fidelio Bruni’s The Brazen Serpent is one of the most spectacular canvases painted in the first half of the nineteenth century. The artist worked arduously on the painting for over fifteen years, from the first sketches to the final version. The most important work in Bruni’s oeuvre, the painting of The Brazen Serpent was a landmark event in Russian cultural life.
