Description :Etching by Gustaf Frank after a painting of Ilya Repin (1887). Gustav Frank (1859-1923) attended school in Vlasim, where he learned to draw from Cenka Schneider. Then he completed higher secondary school in Prague and the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, majoring in painting.
In 1890 he went to St Petersburg, here he first worked as a teacher in tsarist artistic authority. In 1896 he became a member of the editorial committee of art in St Petersburg, where the made pictorial publications of the Moscow tsar coronation.
Frank lived in St Petersburg between 1890 and 1911, having accepted an invitation from the State Papers Office in St Petersburg to help improve the artistic quality of its work. Frank made portraits in crayon of the Emperors Alexander III and Nicolas II, and etchings of Leo Tolstoy and Eleonora Duse, and in 1899 became a member of the Royal Academy of Arts.

Ilya Repin was a talented Russian painter of the Peredvizhniki School, who was held up by the Soviet government as an artist to be imitated by the new school of Socialist Realists. At the age of 22, Repin began his art career at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg, the same time as the “Rebellion of the Fourteen,” when 14 young artists left the school after refusing to paint mythological paintings for their diplomas.
These artists would later form the Society of the Peredvizhniki, which Repin joined in 1878. Repin and the free thinking “itinerants,” as they were also called, rebelled against the formal academy, insisting that art should reflect real life.
As an art student, his travels took him to Italy, Paris and Impressionist Exhibitions, and although he was exposed to the vivid colours and quick brush strokes of the impressionist style, he remained true to his unique form of realism. Many of the subjects Repin painted were common people, like himself, although he did on many occasions paint the Russian elite, intelligentsia, and Tsar Nicholas II.

He also painted many of his contemporary compatriots, including novelist Leo Tolstoy, composer Modest Mussorgsky, scientist Dmitri Mendeleev, and Ukranian painter Taras Schevchenko. A common recurring theme in his paintings was the Russian Revolutionary Movement, and as a result his works are often classified as a “Russian national style.” In his later life, he lived in a house in Kuokkala, Finland, called the Penates, which he designed and built himself. After the October Revolution of 1917, Finland declared Independence, and Repin was invited to return to the Soviet Union. He refused, saying that he was too old to make the journey, and remained in Finland until his death thirteen years later.
In 1940, the Penates house was opened to the public as a museum.
