This week, I decided to make a variation in my “artist of the week” theme. My featured artist is Ilya Yefimovich Repin (1844-1930), one of the “greats” of the Russian art world. Later this week, I shall present some fresh biographical material on him not previously available in English. Instead of a “compare and contrast”, I shall present three works by Mr Repin daily.
