A large-scale exhibition of works by Ilya Repin (1844–1930) will present a modern interpretation of the great painter’s art. The best works of the master, created from the early 1870s to the end of the 1920s, will be on display.
The exhibition, located on 3 floors in the largest exhibition halls of the Tretyakov Gallery, will include more than 180 paintings and more than 130 graphic works. In addition to well-known paintings (Barge Haulers on the Volga, Unexpected Return, Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire), little-known works were selected for the exhibition, and they will be a real discovery for the Moscow public. The highlight of the exhibition will be the display of the large-format canvas Ceremonial Sitting of the State Council on 7 May, 1901 from the collection of the State Russian Museum.
