IVAN IVANOVICH SHISHKIN (1832-1898)
Shishkin's etchings seem to be in the shadow of his mighty painting talent. However, connoisseurs of art will understand, that the artistic quality, "picturesqueness", rare for engravings, the mastery of light and shadow, the virtuoso performance make Shishkin's etchings be of the same rank as that of his celebrated landscapes painted in oils on canvas.

The image of the pines above the brook has much in common with the artist's famous painting motives and it is in itself of great artistic value.
