REPIN, Ilya Yefimovich
(b. 1844, Chuguyev, d. 1930, Kuokkala)

Portrait of the Artist's Daughter Vera

Oil on canvas, 73 x 60 cm
State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow

Repin spent the years from 1873 to 1876 in western Europe, including France, exhibiting at the 1875 Paris Salon. He was not taken with the sketchiness of Impressionism, and found only Manet to his taste.Even so, his technique acquired a fresh ease in private studies, such as the portrait of his little daughter Vera.
