"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer [Ilya Repin, Fisher Girl, 1874]
Ilia Efimovich Repin (Russian painter) 1844 - 1930 Beggar (Fisher Girl), 1874 oil on canvas 74 × 50 cm. (29.1 × 19.7 in.) Irkutsk Regional Art Museum, Irkutsk, Russia Ilya Yefimovich Repin (Russian: Илья́ Ефи́мович Ре́пин) was a Russian realist painter. He was the most renowned Russian artist of the 19th century, when his position in the world of art was comparable to that of Leo Tolstoy in literature. He played a major role in bringing Russian art into the mainstream of European culture.
Ilya Repin, Fisher Girl, 1874. Repin sojourned in Italy and lived in Paris, where he was exposed to French Impressionist painting, which had a lasting effect upon his use of light and colour. His style was to remain closer to that of the old European masters, especially Rembrandt, and he never embraced Impressionism.
