Public domain ← → Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581 Ilya Repin Original Title: Иван Грозный и его сын Иван 16 ноября 1581 года Date: 1885 Style: Realism Genre: history painting Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 254 x 199 cm Location: Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, Russia File Source: www.the-athenaeum.org Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Image dimension 750x581px, View all sizes Although Repin strayed away from painting historical episodes, he completed Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan in the genre. This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son in Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face, a single tear on his cheek. Repin began thinking about painting this historical episode after the assassination of Alexander II. In an attempt to recall other bloody episodes of Russian history, he painted this piece as a as an expression of his rejection of violence and bloodshed.
