Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581
This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son in Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.
This is my favorite painting ever and I hereby vow to always share it whenever I come across it.
I have seen this painting in Moscow. It’s absolutely breathtaking in person. So grotesquely beautiful.
His eyes are haunting
cutest thing ever
i have my Christmas cards/presents ready
