    "Vsevolod Mikhailovich Garshin" by Ilia Efimovich Repin (1884) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "The sitter for this painting was the twenty-nine-year-old Russian author Vsevolod Garshin, whose life was scarred by the suicides of his father and brother and his own struggles with mental illness. Garshin published approximately twenty stories, many of which powerfully express his pacifist beliefs, his love of beauty, and his aversion to evil."

    The previous poster wrote the text about the artist. I want to add that it's an excellent portrait. The details and the sadness of the face are so realistic; in contrast, the desk is painterly and suggested. Those are signs of a talented portrait painter.

Memorial Day-Greg Betza In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.. We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields... To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. – Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
