[*At the beginning of 1898 Ivan Shishkin, then aged sixty-six, produced a picture that revealed for the last time the artistic capabilities of the grand old man of Russian landscape painting (soon after completing his work, on March 8, 1898, Shishkin died). This was Mast-Tree Grove, a canvas that synthesised, as it were, the various facets of the master’s creative manner. A well-composed work and one of his largest, it produces an impression of monumentality, of stately grandeur and tranquility.*](https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/asset-viewer/mast-tree-grove/xwEdxJI5Z5SKLg?hl=en)
