Ilya Repin's paintings are very powerful and have a uniqueness in approach to subject matter that sets his work apart from his contemporaries . I have the book 'The Russian Vision - The Art of Ilya Repin' by David Jackson and have to say that the book is full of beautiful images of his work. This video only covers a few of them.
I also highly recommend the book because it not only talks about his life along with beautiful reproductions of his work, but addresses why certain paintings are considered master pieces. Explanations of technique and comparisons to approaches always add a new insight and are an invaluable tool for an artist.
I will upload more as I get a chance to complete the list of his works. It will be a good opportunity to reread and share some of the insights....
