Ilya Repine, Petit Palais, Paris

From October 5, 2021 to January 23, 2022, Le Petit Palais presents a new exhibition: "Ilya Repine, painting the Russian soul", which introduces one of the most eminent painters in the history of Russian art, who is little known in France.
A hundred paintings trace the life and work of this artist who strongly influenced the art world of the nineteenth and twentieth century in Russia.
This exhibition from Finland is composed for the most part of Russian loans, including Tretiakov Gallery, Pushkin museum, National Museum of Russia in St Petersburg, but also loans from the Finnish Ateneum Art Museum, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Calais, the Musée d'Orsay and the Princeton University Museum of Art.
In addition to accompanying the couriers in a sensitive sanitary context, LP Art teams have distinguished themselves with talent in the unpacking and installation of a hundred or so works, in particular during the craning operations required to hoist the crates to the first floor of the Musée du Petit Palais, especially for a masterpiece that is not framed, an oil on canvas from 1886 entitled "Alexander III receiving the deans of the cantons in the courtyard of the Petrovsky Palace in Moscow".
