Ilya Repin - part 9

1914 Ilya Repin painting a portrait of Feodor Chaliapin

Ilya Yefimovich Repin (1844 – 1930) was a Russian realist painter. He was the most renowned Russian artist of the 19th century, when his position in the world of art was comparable to that of Leo Tolstoy in literature.
In 1863 Repin went to St. Petersburg Art Academy to study painting but had to enter Ivan Kramskoy preparatory school first. He met fellow artist Ivan Kramskoy (Kramskoy is also featured on this blog - see index) and the critic Vladimir Stasov during the 1860s, and his wife, Vera Shevtsova in 1872 (they remained married for ten years). In 1874–1876 he showed at the Salon in Paris and at the exhibitions of the Itinerants Society in Saint Petersburg. He was awarded the title of Academician in 1876.
In 1892 he published the "Letters on Art" collection of essays. He taught at the Higher Art School attached to the Academy of Arts from 1894. In 1898 he purchased an estate, Penaty (the Penates), in Kuokkala, Finland (now Repino, St. Petersburg.)
In 1901 he was awarded the Legion of Honour. In 1911 he travelled with his common-law wife Natalia Nordman to the World Exhibition in Italy,  where his painting "Demonstration 17 October 1905" and his portraits were displayed in their own separate room.
