Although its social message was crystal clear in its portrayal of the inhumane working conditions faced by the barge haulers, the work was bought by the Emperor’s second son, Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, and exhibited all throughout Europe as an example of Russian realist painting. The work was wildly popular, and it has been parodied throughout Russia, and used as the basis for political cartoons. It was also the inspiration for the popular Russian song “The Song of the Volga Boatmen.” Ilya Repin Famous works Barge Haulers on the Volga Ilya Repin · 1870 - 1873 Sadko Ilya Repin · 1876 Portrait of the Composer Modest Musorgsky Ilya Repin · 1881 Krestny Khod (Religious Procession) in Kursk Gubernia Ilya Repin · 1880 - 1883 Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581 Ilya Repin · 1885 Portrait of Leo Tolstoy Ilya Repin · 1887 Unexpected Visitors Ilya Repin · 1884 - 1888 The Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mahmoud IV Ilya Repin · 1889 - 1896 Not expected Ilya Repin · 1883 - 1898 View all 541 artworks Related Artworks The Port of Bordeaux Edouard Manet A soldier with a bundle of firewood Vasily Polenov Public garden on the bank of the Volga (festivities on the banks of the Volga) Boris Kustodiev A settlement near Volga Vasily Polenov And there was Vasily Polenov On the Volga Boris Kustodiev On the Volga Boris Kustodiev A Good Glass of Beer Edouard Manet Girl with Washed Linen on the Yoke Ivan Kramskoy The Races in the Bois de Boulogne Edouard Manet Inspection of the old house Ivan Kramskoy Books Got Her Ivan Kramskoy Crossing of the River Oyat Vasily Polenov Young woman with a book Edouard Manet Beach at Boulogne Edouard Manet Boy Blowing Bubbles Edouard Manet The Balcony Edouard Manet Granny's Orchard Vasily Polenov Caesarian fun Vasily Polenov The burial Edouard Manet 1 Load more Advertisement.
