Ilya Repin

Ateneum Art Museum, Helsinki

  • 19.3.2021–29.8.2021

The Ateneum is closed until 31 March 2021 to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Painter Ilya Repin (1844–1930) is above all known as a master of psychological portrayals of people and depictions of Russian folklife.


The Ateneum is closed until Wednesday 31 March 2021 to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The exhibition of Ilya Repin will not unfortunately open for the public on 19 March 2021. The opening date of the exhibition will be announced later.

Ilya Repin, the most significant Russian artist of his time, depicted the Russian people, who had been freed from serfdom in the 1860s, as well as the intelligentsia of the era, and the relationship between the people and their rulers. The exhibition is realised in collaboration with the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and the Petit Palais in Paris.

The Ateneum will be able to display Repin’s best-known paintings with masterful details, including Barge Haulers on the Volga (1870–1873) and Zaporozhian Cossacks Writing a Mocking Letter to the Turkish Sultan (1880–1891), both from the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. The exhibition’s many portraits feature members of the artist’s family, as well as cultural influencers of the time, such as the composer Modest Mussorgsky and the author Leo Tolstoy.
