A native of a peasant family, from childhood had a strong craving for art, but his parents did not share his interests, and being still very young, Orlov left home and went to study with a wandering painter. They walked around the villages, offered their services in painting houses, temples ..

His skills and technique improved, later he began to receive orders for icons and portraits from wealthy landowners. Fate brought him once with a noble nobleman who, having seen the work of young Orlov, considered it necessary to send the young man to Petersburg, to the Academy of Arts! There he became a brilliant student of Bryullov, and as an encouragement he soon got the opportunity to go to study painting in Italy!

He painted canvases inspired by Italian life, festivities, holidays. He was so fascinated by Italian beauties, completely delved into the genre of historical painting, that he never returned to Russia until his death. During his lifetime, he received numerous praises from both the Russian and Italian public.

The painting “October Holiday in Italy” is Orlov’s best, most famous painting, executed in the best traditions of romanticism, which shows the influence of his teacher, Karl Bryullov. Softness and beauty of color, smoothness of contours, lightness, amazing play of light.

October in Italy is the harvesting month, people celebrate, have fun and rejoice and revere Dionysus. People drink wine, dance, have fun, the evening air is gentle and warm, the contours of Rome are visible, grapes fall down from above, a woman dances and beats a tambourine, a couple drinks wine, gently glancing at each other. The picture feels lightness, carelessness, grace - in every pose, every movement, in every fold on the dress.

    Good day, dear colleagues and friends. I spent a lot of time looking for a good blog on similar topics, but many of them did not suit me with the lack or lack of information, stupid interfaces, and so on. Now I found what I wanted and decided to add my own comment. I would like, dear sirs administrators, that your blog continues to develop at such a pace, the number of people grows steadily, and the pages become more and more. I remembered the address of your blog for a long time and I hope to enter the ranks of the most active users. Many thanks to everyone who listened to me and took a minute of free time to read this commentary. Thanks again. Vitaly.
