Repin, artwork images and photographs

27.4.–29.8.2021

An exhibition by the international master Ilya Repin presents some of his most famous historical paintings and portraits of major cultural figures of his time, as well as his works from the Ateneum collection. Born in the territory of present-day Ukraine, Repin is Russia’s most famous painter, and he is also loved by the Finns: his studio home was located on Finnish territory, in Kuokkala in Terijoki, between 1903 and 1930.
