Ilya Repin's Memorial Estate "Penates". 1975 - 1.


* Ilya Repin's Memorial Estate "Penates".
Ilya Repin (1844 - 1930) was a leading Russian painter and sculptor of the Peredvizhniki artistic school. The I. E. Repin's Memorial Estate "Penaty" is a world-famous monument of Russian culture of the end of the 19th - early 20th centuries. Repin himself designed his home Penaty (literally, "the Penates") or the Roman "Household Gods", located just to the north of Saint Petersburg in Kuokkala (now Repino). Repin had lived in the "Penaty" Estate for the last 30 years of his life.
Care is taken of preserving historic appearance of rooms - 2 studios, a dining room, Repin's study and verandahs among them, - which speak of the owner's tastes and habits. Over 100 artworks by Repin, his students and friends are on display in the museum.


* Ilja Repini majamuuseum "Penaadid".
Kuulsa Vene maalikunstniku majamuuseum koos seda ümbritseva pargiga asub Karjalas Repinos (endine Kuokkala) ja on paik, kus Repin elas ja maalis oma elu viimasel 30 aastal. Hoone oli tema enda kavandatud. Pärast oma surma pärandas ta selle kunstiakadeemiale muuseumi jaoks. Muuseum avati 1940. aastal, kuid Suure Isamaasõja ajal 1944. aastal põles maja maha. Juba 1941. aastal sellest välja viidud esemed ja teosed säilisid ning 1962. aasta juuniks toodi need tagasi taastatud muuseumisse. Penaadid, kelle järgi kunstnik oma kodu nimetas, on Vana-Rooma koduhaldjad, kodu kaitsejumalad.

* Музей-усадьба И.Е. Репина "Пенаты"
Мемориальный музей открылся в июне 1940 года. В 1944 году, во время Великой Отечественной войны, дом сгорел. Однако, в 1941 году были вывезены и хранились в здании Академии художеств личные вещи, картины и рисунки Репина. В июне 1962 года возрожденная усадьба приняла посетителей.

9 May - Victory Day

Postcard, 1978.

Postcard, 1983.
My collection.

* The Soviet Victory Day or 9 May marks the capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union in the Second World War (also known as the Great Patriotic War in the Soviet Union and some post-Soviet states). It was first inaugurated in the fifteen republics of the Soviet Union, following the signing of the surrender document late in the evening on 8 May 1945 (9 May by Moscow Time). It happened after the original capitulation that Germany earlier agreed to the joint Allied forces of the Western Front. The Soviet government announced the victory early on 9 May after the signing ceremony in Berlin.
