Ilya Repin’s birthday

Originally shared by Google Arts & Culture

Painter Ilya Repin (1844-1930) and author Leo Tolstoy (1828–1910) were BFFs. They also happened to be two of the most famous Russian artists of the nineteenth century. According to the curators at The State Russian Museum, Repin #bornonthisday  in 1844 frequently visited the writer at his country estate Yasnaya Polyana. And, there he painted an entire gallery of portraits from life. The writer posed several times for the artist in his garden.

Leo Tolstoy Barefoot reflects many of the writer’s spiritual quests.

Take a closer look at this famous, and nearly life-sized portrait here: goo.gl/RM2Zdo  You can also „virtually” stroll through Tolstoy’s home where Repin worked on the painting for ten years: goo.gl/xPj8CM
