"A key figure in the art world of his time, Repin was interested in various aspects of culture, from literature to music to science. He was very close to many Russian personalities, such as writer Leo Tolstoy, composer Modest Mussorgsky and collector Pavel Tretyakov. A witness to the many upheavals that shook Russia in his lifetime, Repin was particularly attentive to the profound historical and social changes that shaped his country, reflecting them in his works."
