Ivan Shishkin was a 19th-century Russian artist who excelled at creating beautiful paintings of woodland scenes. These paintings are typically so photorealistic that it's often hard to believe that you're actually looking at a painting, and not simply a photograph. Whenever I feel like escaping from my hectic world for a little while, one little look at these paintings is all it takes to completely refresh my mind.
Below, you'll find 20 of Shishkin's most spectacular paintings. Enjoy!
