Since it’s a 19th century week, I wanted to share something I saw in the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. I really don’t know much anything about this painting, exept that it’s probably painted either in St. Petersburg or in Paris, where Repin moved in 1876. Here's the wikipaintings page of the painting, and this is where I found the image.

"Maybe we’re on Mars because of the magnificent science that can be done there - the gates of the wonder world are opening in our time. Maybe we’re on Mars because we have to be, because there’s a deep nomadic impulse built into us by the evolutionary process, we come after all, from hunter gatherers, and for 99.9% of our tenure on Earth we’ve been wanderers. And, the next place to wander to, is Mars. But whatever the reason you’re on Mars is, I’m glad you’re there. And I wish I was with you.”
— Carl Sagan
