"November 16th. Eras of Mercy"

History, as we surely know, develops in a spiral way…the most famous Repin’s picture, that we know from school books «Ivan the Terrible and his son Ivan the 16-th of November 1581», (another name «Ivan the Terrible kills his son», was forbidden in 1885 by Alexander III of Russian Empire, so it was the first picture that became censured in Russia.

In 130 years later, in a modern Russia, the group of historians and activists sent a mail to the Minister of Culture of Russian with the request to move the picture off the Tretyakovskaya gallery. But many of partial people stood up for the great picture of the genius painter.
