The conference was held on the Zoom platform.
N.N. Mutya’s speaker paper on “National style as the identity of culture: Russian historical painting of the second half of the 19th – early 20th centuries” was presented within the section “Russian art and the international context: the 18th – first half of the 20th century”.

": the life and "death" of Ilya Repin in the mirror of the world media (1918–1921)" within the section "Russian Artists Abroad: Study, Realisation of personal potential, Emigration". The speaker paper investigated false reports about the death of the Russian artist I.E. Repin, identified by the author in the media of Sweden, Great Britain, France, USA, Germany, Poland for 1918-1921. These "obituaries" were considered as valuable sources of historical information, not only revealing the assessment of the life and creative heritage of I.E.Repin, but also allowing characterizing the historical and cultural context of the artist's “death” - from “victim of Bolshevism” to “tragic reality”.
