Ilya Yefimovich Repin (5 August 1844 – 29 September 1930)

Ilya Repin, Zaporizhzhya Cossacks 1878-1891.

The picture is also known as The Zaporizhzhya Cossacks Replying 
to the Sultan.
According to legend, the letter was written in 1676 by the Koshev Ataman
 Ivan Sirko in response to an ultimatum from Sultan 
Mehmed (Mohammed) IV of the Ottoman Empire. At that time there was 
a Russian-Turkish war of 1672-1681, and the sultan demanded in writing 
from the Zaporizhian Sich to obey him, as hetman Petro Doroshenko did.
One day the historian Dmytro Yavornytsky read out a copy of this letter to his 
guests, among whom was Ilya Repin.
The artist became interested in the subject and in 1880 began his first 
series of sketches.
