Ilya Repin created a series of fine Impressionist canvases, including the pearl of Russian Impressionist painting "On a Turf Bench". His genre canvases are now classics of Russian Impressionism and did much to popularise the compositional devices of Impressionism in Russian painting.

Depicted: Vera Alexeyevna Repina, the artist’s wife; Vera and Nadya, his daughters; Alexei and Evgenia Shevtsov, parents of the artist’s wife; Alexei and Maria Shevtsov, the artist’s brother-in-law and his wife.
