Anton Rubinstein (1829–1894) was a leading Russian pianist and composer. He founded the St Petersburg Conservatoire and often performed in Western Europe and the United States. Ilya Repin described the composer in a letter to the music and art critic Vladimir Stasov: “Interesting head, like a lion.” This portrait of Anton Rubinstein is one of Repin’s most dynamic compositions.
