The artist is Repin
All portraits of the painter are “different”, they reflect different characters and moods of people. In 1876, a “portrait of Ivan Shishkin” was created. The figure of the seated landscape painter is shifted to the left and as if internally tense, and cold detachment froze in his gaze. Repin managed to convey the mental trauma of Ivan Shishkin, which was associated with the loss of his wife and two children.
