Life:
Born in Barcelona in the year 1863.
Joan Brull studied art at the School Llotja in Barcelona, at the same time as other painters of the period. 
He was initially interested in historical themes, which he developed in a totally figurative style. An example of his work from this period is the picture "La tonsura de Wamba". Another theme frequently developed by Brull during this time was mythology, painting subjects such as "Nimfes al capvespre" (Nymphs at dusk) and Safo (Sappho). 
He was very much influenced by Modernisme (Art Nouveau), and became an important member of the movement.
His mature period started around 1885, and is characterized by sentimentalism, tenderness and a melancholic inspiration, which are manifested in his works Ensomni, Idil·li and Misticisme.
In addition to his activity as a painter, he also was an art critic.
Joan Brull died in Barcelona in 1912.
