Ilya Repin (1844-1930) was a renowned realist painter and Russian artist of the 19th century. He played a major role in bringing Russian art and themes into European culture. His painting, Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire, depicts the Cossacks composing a reply to the Turkish Sultan in 1676. The latter had written a demanding letter to the Cossacks bidding them to submit to his authority, and the Cossacks replied with their own—a parody of the Sultan’s letter. Repin captures the moment with color and mirth as the Cossacks gleefully suggest insults to include in the reply.
