Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581
This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son in Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.

Greg Gossel's Multi-Layered Pop Pieces
After watching Exit Through the Gift Shop, you may have a hard time looking at pop art and seeing it as a true movement. We even had a discussion right here on theMET whether comic books were a true form of art. Today, I thought I would introduce an artist named Greg Gossel, an artist undeniably inspired by Roy Lichtenstein. Using an array of media involving silkscreen, experimental Xerox copy and transfers, as well as various found billboard scraps and signage, Gossel creates kitschy, colorful art that’s reminiscent of years past with an interesting and modern twist.
Greg explains “the process of creating this new body of work consists of a constant layering of elements, building up the surface, and creating a unique history within each piece; adding new elements, while painting over and obscuring others. Through this process I try to explore the contrast between the mechanical repetition of silkscreen reproduction and geometric elements, with the organic and expressive qualities of hand painting and mark making.”
