Ilya Efimovich Repin was born in 1844 in the small Ukrainian town of Chuguev into the family of a military settler. As a boy he was trained as an icon painter. At the age of 19 he entered the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts. His arrival in the capital coincided with an important event in the artistic life of the 60s, the so-called ‘Rebellion of the Fourteen’, when 14 young artists left the Academy after refusing to use mythological subjects for their diploma works. They insisted that art should reflect real life, not classical scholarship, and formed the Society of the Peredvizhniki to promote their own aesthetic ideals. Later, Repin would become associated with the movement, and grow to be a close friend of some of the painters.Read Ilya Repin's Full Biography
