Shishkin as a painter


Russian landscape painting of the nineteenth century constitutes a significant chapter in the history of Russian culture.

Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin was born in the town of Yelabuga (near the Kama river, a tributary of Volga) on January 13, 1832. Under the influence of his father, an amateur archeologist and connoisseur of local lore, the future artist learned to deeply appreciate the history and scenic beauty of his native land, and to love the picturesque banks of the Kama and the endless forests of the Viatka province.
