Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks by Ilya Repin Framed Print 24" x 36" - $50 (New Orleans)

123

condition: good

This is a 36" x 24" framed print of a Russian painting by Ilya Repin, the most famous Russian painter of the 19th century. The original was painted in 1891. The blurry areas are the glare on the glass. The picture depicts a story about the Ukrainian/Russian Cossacks writing a letter to the Turkish sultan, who had threatened them with invasion if they did not surrender. Their response is a dirty letter repeatedly insulting the sultan and his mother, which is why they are laughing in the picture.
