One of my all-time favourites by Ilja Repin, Fisher Girl (it might be Ilya in English world ;-)
This painting just touch my heart.



We had Ilja Repin Exhibition here in Helsinki, a sort of "once in a lifetime". Ateneum (National Art Museum) was filled for months, despite the Corona restrictions.
I had the opportunity to see with my own eyes the Zaporoznian Cossacks, Volga Boatmen, and other masterpieces. The exhibition was moved to Paris after the Helsinki visit.

Gagarin monument, Moscow



It's a 42.5-meter high pedestal and statue of Yuri Gagarin, the first person to travel in space. It is located at Leninsky Prospekt in Moscow. The pedestal is designed to be reminiscent of a rocket exhaust. The statue is made of titanium, a metal often used in spacecraft, and weighs 12 tons.

The monument to Yuri Gagarin was built for the 1980 Olympic Games. It stands in Gagarin Square on Leninsky Avenue. The creators of the monument are the sculptor Pavel Bondarenko, architects Yakov Belopolsky, F.M. Gazhevsky, and designer A.F. Sudakov. The monument is made of titanium and mounted on a high ribbed pedestal. The total height of the monument is 42.5 metres (139 ft), the total weight is 12 tons. At the foot of the monument is a copy of the Vostok descent vehicle, which was flown on April 12, 1961, when Yuri Gagarin made the first crewed flight into space.

The statue creators turned to the specialists at the All-Russian Institute Of Aviation Materials (VIAM) for help, who recommended the sculpture use the titanium casting alloy VT5L, which has a shiny surface and acceptable color. In addition, specialists at VIAM developed technical processes used by VSMPO to cast ingots of VT5L alloy with a low oxygen content (0.12%).

The monument was made in less than a year at the Balashikha Foundry and Mechanical Plant. The titanium sculpture of Yuri Gagarin was assembled from 238 cast segments, which were connected with bolts and welding. The greatest problems arose with the manufacture of the largest segment – the cosmonaut's face. Its weight was 300 kilograms (660 lb), which was too heavy for melting in a vacuum oven. The Monument to Yuri Gagarin is the world's first large-scale monument made of titanium.

The figure of Gagarin is facing upward. The high ribbed pedestal is an important part of the composition and symbolizes the launch of the space rocket. The inscription at the base of the monument reads (in Russian):

"On April 12, 1961, the Soviet space ship Vostok with a man on board flew around the globe. The first person to penetrate into space is a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, Yuri Gagarin."

WOWWWW, that's a phenomenal work of art there! And I also simply loved "The Traveler's" with the negative space you must fill in for yourself!

Reminds me of my visit to Florence and being introduced to Michelangelo's "David"...that was the day I truly "got" art!

Even more amazing, if that's possible, was seeing his unfinished pieces. I stood and stared, seeing the finished sculptures inside the marble, but unfreed. It was transformative to view these. Check this out. Incredible.

Great ^

I admire the artists who create realistic manmade sculptures. Being lucky enough to see them in the making is wonderful to me.
I find interest in abstract sculptures too.
I bought a few "not-cheap" sculptures. The main one is called "L'Arbitre" ("The Referee"), bronze.

I consider interesting you identified which work of art awakened your resonance with Art.
In my case, that art trigger certainly is a musical piece for pipe organ: one very specific interpretation of BWV 565. It is the work of art I've explored the most so far.

Your sculpture is totally magnificent. I am sure I could stand there for a very long time, as you have, and just soak in every detail. REMARKABLE. The investment to create a bronze is so staggering. Also, to be more clear: I did not understand the motivation behind sculpture until I saw David. I have been an artistic soul since I picked and carefully arranged tiny, mouse-sized bouquets for my mother to display in a thimble vase! :)

Also--music is such a profound artistic form, and I am currently appreciating BWV 565 (learned something new today--recognized the piece but not what, nor why, it was named such. Cool.) Thanks for that! You are delightfully dynamic, my new friend.

The sculpture you posted blew me away! Thank you for introducing me to these crumbling relics...here is another spomenik that still survives (thousands were intentionally blown up, I am horrified and saddened to learn)

In 2021 sculptor Armand Vaillancourt turns 92 years old. In a career spanning almost seventy years, this iconoclastic artist has earned a reputation for both his talent and his extraordinary personality.
