The Academic Dacha of I.E. Repin
The Academic Dacha of Repin is the oldest and the most famous creative base of the Union of Artists, where for more than 100 years Russian painters have been gathering to participate in collective plein airs. An exceptional role in the organization and improvement of the Academic dacha belonged to its guardian V. A. Kokorev, the owner of one of the largest collections of Russian and Western European art. At the Academic Dacha worked I. Repin, A. Kuindzhi, V. Serov, I. Levitan, N. Roerich, A. Vasnetsov, K. Bogaevsky, N. Bogdanov-Belsky and many other famous Russian artists.
