A Portrait of Yuri Repin, the Son of the Artist (Ilya Repin, 1882)

The theme for today of the art of Ilya Repin is “boys”. This is the portrait of Mr Repin’s only son, who died in early childhood. The early death of his only son and the death of his first wife, Vera, scarred the artist, lending a note of pathos and tragedy to his life.
