    to jonas

    Thank you Jonas for posting Arsen Kurbanov's pictures. Just one request, can you make them a little smaller so that you dont' have to scroll to see the whole painting?

    I was amazed too when I saw the drawings by Nikolay and the paintings by Kurbanov. Its proof that there is still amazing work done at the academy. The quality may have been in a decline the last ten or twenty years but its still amazing, havent seen anything near this level from most if not all similar schools around the world.
    I also have the feeling we havent seen much from the current work done at the academy either by students or professors, especially paintings. I bet there are tons of amazing paintings in there.

    hey guys, thanks for this thread! I am still adamant on attending Repin. I'm in a good situation now, where I can save up and prepare for the trip over. I'll keep everyone updated on my mission to get over there.

    Anyways, here's a site with most of Repin's work. Amazing!

    take care,

    Thanks for the link Francis! His stuff is so good. I hope they have some drawings at the academy from Repin himself when he was teaching. Do you know of any Lena?

    Just discovered this thread.
    Would love to jump in here from
    time to time if you don't mind.

    Just started analyzing the
    Russian Academies recently
    and it has opened up a
    whole new universe for me.

    love this thread. you mentioned that you haven't seen anything near this level from other academies. what about the china, koreans, japanese, and the french ecole? I think they are pretty good too

    here's some links that i'd like to share:
    http://www.cafa.edu.cn/main.asp
    the china central academy of fine arts. do a google translation, they have some videos of their drawing/painting classes.

    http://artparks.wordpress.com/
    a website showcasing the korean watercolor/drawings with some step by step instructions. (you might wanna google hongik university, think that's one of the prestigious art schools in korea)

    tell me what you think about them =D

    Inspirational and motivational stuff, I think this is a good thread to look at when considering slacking off.
