Nocturne, the Solent - James Abbott McNeill Whistler

Sadko in the Underwater Kingdom, Ilya Repin (Ukrainian), 1876, oil on canvas, 323 x 230 cm, The State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg

Give the Sea Czar your respect, or he will drag you underwater and take it.


Note that this is not particularly representative of Repin’s oeuvre, as there was generally a more realist, political, and/or historical bent to his work.
