Paintings by Ilya Repin

Ilya Repin was a Russian painter who worked in the 19th and 20th centuries. In his artistic endeavors, he often turned to techniques known from realism. He had a particular fondness for depicting "ordinary" people, as he considered himself one of them. He portrayed their everyday lives, worries, and concerns. He didn't romanticize the world but presented the surrounding reality with the sincerity that characterized his work. Ilya Repin was particularly drawn to local folklore, both Russian and Ukrainian, due to his heritage. In his later work, he shifted towards portraiture and historical painting. He also ventured into genre painting, depicting scenes from contemporary Russia. His skillful brushwork, exceptional use of light and color, garnered recognition from the monarchs of his time and the local elite, with Tsar Nicholas II Romanov at the forefront.

He passed away at the age of 86 in Kuokkala, which was renamed Repino in his honor in 1948.
