Third Yelabuga Trienniale of Ex-libris–2018

Dedicated to Ivan Shishkin

ru en


Ivan Shishkin (1832-1898) — an outstanding Russian painter, academician (1865), professor (1873). He was born in a merchant family in the small town of Yelabuga, Vyatka province. He graduated from the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture (1856), the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg (1860).

I.Shishkin is one of the world famous representatives of Russian culture, whose name became a symbol of Russia along with the names of Pushkin and Tolstoy, Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky, Repin and Levitan and many others.

The artist left a legacy of not just a realistic, but also deeply Russian in spirit landscape painting. His canvases have a powerful epic scope, and a close look reveals their complex spiritual content. His work is not just pictures of his native nature: the artist created symbolic images of the blessed and simultaneously tragic God's world.

Yelabuga is a city of childhood and adolescence of the artist. Here he was born and grew up, here he got strength for his creative work. Already becoming a famous master, he often visited his native land, where in the forests of Yelabuga, in the open air he found beautiful landscape views for his future paintings.

During a long life Shishkin created several hundred paintings, thousands of graphic works - drawings, etchings, lithographs and zincographies.

Much is being done in the homeland of the artist to preserve the memory of the famous countryman and popularize his work. Yelabuga State Museum-Reserve includes the I.Shishkin Memorial House-Museum, a monument to the artist and the territory of the restored Shishkin Ponds.
