Ivan Shishkin - part 2

Portrait of Ivan Shiskin by Ivan Kramskoy 1873 
oil on canvas 110 x 78 cm

Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin (1832 – 1898) was a Russian landscape painter closely associated with the Peredvizhniki movement. Peredvizhniki, often called The Wanderers or The Itinerants in English, were a group of Russian realist artists who in protest at academic restrictions formed an artists' cooperative; it evolved into the Society for Travelling Art Exhibitions in 1870.

For biographical notes on Shishkin, and for earlier works, see part 1.

Parts 1-4 feature his paintings, part 5 his drawings. Unfortunately I couldn't find the medium or sizes for many of these works, though I believe they are all oil on canvas.

This is part 2 of a 5-part post on the works of Ivan Shishkin:

  1. Incredible work here. He seemed really ahead of his time - some of his work looks like photo realism. It's truly avant garde. I love it. You posted so many wonderful images. Thank you for sharing these.
