Ilya Yefimovich Repin (August 5 (July 24), 1844-September 29, 1930) - a Russian painter, a member of the Society of Wandering Exhibitions. Among his best known work are historical paintings ("Ivan the Terrible and his Son Ivan" and "Dnieper Cossacks Write a Letter to the Turkish Sultan") and pictures demonstrating the moral and physical strength of the Russian people ("Barge Haulers on the Volga" and "A Religious Procession in the Kursk Province"). Repin's portraits of his contemporaries (Modest Moussorgsky and Pavel Tretyakov) have psychological depth and strong social undertones.
