Ilya Repin

Ilya Yefimovitch Repin (1844-1930) was one of the most celebrated Russian artists of the latter half of the 19th century. Popular as both a portraitist and a painter of realistic genre scenes, he found surprising new fame in the Soviet era, when he was held up as a model for the new generation of Socialist Realist artists.

This is the first of three sets of Repin's works.

 A Nun (1878)

 A Parisian Café (1875)

 Aleksander III receiving rural district elders in the yard of Petrovsky Palace in Moscow

 Arrest of a Propagandist (1880-92)

 Arrival of the Tsars Peter I and Ivan V (1900)

Choosing a Bride for the Grand Duke (1884)

  Dragonfly. Portrait of Vera Repina, the Artist's Daughter (1884)

 Easter Procession in the Region of Kursk (1880-83)

 Family Portrait (1905)

 Hunchback (1881)

 Mikhail Glinka Composing the Opera 'Ruslan and Lyudmila' (1887)
