Art of the Day – 6/13/13 (Unexpected Visitors, Ilya Repin)

Daily Artwork — “Unexpected Visitors, Ilya Repin, 1884-1888”

Use the images posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of an artwork critique.

1884-1888– Unexpected Visitors. Oil on Canvas. Realism style. Ilya Repin (1844 – 1930). Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia.

“… the face of the young man (a political exile who unexpectedly came back home) [was re-painted] four times in search of a proper expression. It is generally believed that by depicting various reaction of young man’s household Repin tried to show diverse but mostly positive attitude of society toward revolutionary movements of that time. Actually, under strict censorship of Czarist Russia, it was a political declaration disguised as an everyday genre scene.(Wikipaintings)
