Repin: Drawings By Daniel Coenn
eBook (ePub): $1.99
As a boy, Ilya Repin received his first lessons in art in 1858, when he worked for a talented icon painter I. M. Bunakov. Working with Kramskoi, in a year Repin developed his skills sufficiently to... More > be accepted in the Academy. In 1870, Repin made his first sketches for Baurge Haulers on the Volga, while being on a boat trip. When the work was finished in 1873, it immediately won recognition. In the same year for several months Repin had been traveling around Italy and then settled to work in Paris up until 1876. After returning to Russia, Repin settled in Moscow. It was a very fruitful period of his creative activity. During these 10-12 years Repin created majority of his famous paintings. He is the author of many portraits, but he never painted faces, he painted real people. Repin rarely painted historical paintings. The most popular in this genre is The Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mahmoud IV. The contemporaries saw it as a symbol of the Russian people throwing off their chains.< Less

Our Cruel Demon By Dawn Herbert
Paperback: $9.02
Prints in 3-5 business days
I was on vacation in Egypt in 2008 and I can remember standing at the front of the boat whilst on a Nile-cruise watching the water swirling below. I observed how the water formed white crests upon... More > the surface of the river then disappeared below. It was here I realised that the white crests reminded me of myself. I spent my life fighting to rise to the surface only to be swallowed back into the mass around me. My mass was the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and depression it would let me rise so far and for so long. Then it would swallow me up in its mass of rituals and negative thoughts. My story uses poems and diary extracts to give you an honest account of how I have battled with the invisible entity I call ‘The Demon’. I am hoping that on reading this book it will help carers and family to understand the cruel mental illness called OCD. Above all I want to help other sufferers to accept their Demon and ask for help without feeling ashamed and embarrassed.< Less
