The exhibition at the Old National Gallery of the State Museums of Berlin presents a work from the Tretyakov Gallery’s collection: “Portrait of the Artist Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin (1831‒1898)” painted in 1873 by the remarkable artist Ivan Nikolaevich Kramskoy.

Kramskoy depicted the famous artist I.I. Shishkin in a natural attitude (with an umbrella, a folding chair and a box of paints) against the background of a sunny landscape. Obviously, this is not only an illustration of the creative interests of the person portrayed, but also an evidence of the general attention to the landscape genre from the early 1870s on. The landscape is painted in quite a spontaneous manner, using elements of plein-air painting; it is perceived as an evocation of the harmony of man and nature.

The work is displayed next to the painting “Bonjour Monsieur Courbet!” from the Fabre Museum in Montpellier.
