An exhibition featuring work by the international master painter Ilya Repin (1844–1930) will be on display on the third floor of the Ateneum Art Museum until 29 August 2021. Born in the territory of present-day Ukraine, Repin is Russia’s most famous painter, and he is also loved by the Finns: his studio home was located on Finnish territory, in Kuokkala in Terijoki, between 1903 and 1930. The exhibition by Repin will feature some of his most famous historical paintings and portraits of major cultural figures of his time, as well as his works from the Ateneum collection. The opening date of the exhibition for the public will be announced later.
