Lot 565: Russian painter (1844–1930) of the Peredvizhniki artistic school, known for his realistic, psychologically intense works. Desirable postcard depicting Repin's painting entitled 'What Freedom!,' 5.5 x 3.5, signed and inscribed on the front in Cyrillic, adding the date of 1907. Addressed on the reverse in another hand and sent to a woman in Rio de Janeiro. In fine condition, with light foxing and moderate contrast to the inscription against the dark image. Painted in 1903 before the Russian Revolution, Repin's painting portrays two enthusiastic students holding hands as they rise above the ocean, greeting the unlimited expanse ahead with the stroke of a hand.
