Audio tour15 Repin's Masterpieces

Ilya Repin is arguably the main Russian painter of the ХIХ century. If you were to stop by his paintings and take time to look at them carefully, you'd notice that Repin asks his audience serious questions and pushes viewers to form their own opinion about the most earnest topics, such as life and death, choices and responsibility, human nature and resisting fate.

Being genuinely interested in both history and his own epoch, Repin succeeded in creating 'an encyclopaedia of the Russian life'. His canvases give us a chance to discover the different faces of Russia: it is the Russia of peasants and the simple folk, the Russia of aristocrats and the Tsar, the Russia of revolutionaries and artists.

The exhibition features over 170 brushworks and 130 graphic works. This audio-guide will help you to explore the most famous canvases by Repin. The works included into the program correspond with all major phases of his development and showcase different genres and techniques.
