Exhibition "Repin: the Myth of Tolstoy" in Leo Tolstoy Museum
31.08.2019 16:49

It was the brilliant Russian artist Ilya Repin who captured that canonical image of Leo Tolstoy now rooted in the people’s memory.

      Despite friendly relations between the two geniuses, Ilya Repin painted the portrait of Leo Tolstoy only a few years after the writer had appeared in his art studio. The portrait was painted in the writer’s estate. Some time later Repin created the world-famous painting The Plowman aka Leo Tolstoy Plowing the Field.

      The unique exhibition “Repin: the Myth of Tolstoy” presents a large collection of objects with this image. Photographs and postcards of the epoch are also on display.

      Several Tolstoy sculptures by Ilya Repin can be seen at the exhibition as well. Another highlight among all the exhibits is the writer’s portrait.

      Where: Leo Tolstoy State Museum at the address 11/8, Prechistenka Street, next to Kropotkinskaya metro station, Moscow.
