    Ivan Shishkin

    1832 - 1898

    Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin was one of the most popular landscape painters of Russia. His paintings of wooded landscapes led his contemporaries to call him “tsar of the woods.”

    The artist knew as much about individual plane forms as did the professional botanists of his day. Shiskin said, "Work every day as if it is your daily duty. There's no need to wait for inspiration! Inspiration is the work itself!"
