  • Biography
    • Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin is considered to be one of Russia's most powerful and original landscape painters. Shishkin was born on the 25th of January, 1832, in Yelabuga, a small provincial town on the steep bank of the Kama River and graduated from the Kazan gymnasium.
  • Then he studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture for 4 years, then attended the Saint Petersburg Imperial Academy of Arts, graduating with the highest honors and a gold medal. He received the Imperial scholarship for his further studies in Europe.
  • Shishkin's painting method was based on analytical studies of nature. He became famous for his forest landscapes, and was also an outstanding draftsman and a printmaker. Ivan Shishkin owned a dacha in Vyra, south of St. Petersburg. There he painted some of his finest landscapes. His works are notable for poetic depiction of seasons in the woods, wild nature, animals and birds. He died in 1898, in St. Petersburg, Russia.

  • "There is no other artist who possessed such a faultless technique or who so faithfully and with such deep affection for his native land and his art portrayed that Russian nature so dear to us. In the depiction of the Russian forest, Shishkin has no equal."
