English: The portrait of Musorgsky is one of Repin’s best works and also one of the best portraits in all of Russian art during the 1880s. It was painted 10 days before the composer’s death, in the hospital, over the course of four sessions, and, in the words of an eye-witness, “with every possible inconvenience; the painter did not even have an easel and he had to perch at a desk before which the ailing Musorgsky sat in an armchair.” The artist depicts the fatally ill man with unusual delicacy. The indeterminate background creates the illusion of open space. Musorgsky seemingly is depicted against a background of open sky and his gaze is far away. Repin declined to accept pay for the work and he contributed to the raising of a monument for the composer.
Español: El retrato de Músorgski es uno de los mejores trabajos de Repin y también uno de los mejores retratos del arte ruso en la década de 1880. Fue pintado diez días antes de la muerte del compositor, en el hospital, en el transcurso de cuatro sesiones. En palabras de un testigo, "con todos los inconvenientes posibles; el pintor ni siquiera tenía un caballete y debía apoyarse en un escritorio ante el cual el enfermo Músorgski se sentaba en un sillón". El artista capta al hombre enfermo terminal con una inusual delicadeza. El fondo indeterminado crea la ilusión de espacio abierto. Músorgski aparentemente se encuentra ante un cielo despejado y su mirada se pierde muy lejos. Repin declinó aceptar un pago por el cuadro y contribuyó a la creación de un monumento dedicado al compositor.

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain

The author died in 1930, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 80 years or less.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1924.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain in the United States. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.
