Filipp Andreevich Malyavin (Russian: Фили́пп Андре́евич Маля́вин) (October 22, 1869, Kazanka (Julian calendar: October 10) – December 23, 1940, Nice, France) was a Russian painter and draftsman. Trained in icon-painting as well as having studied below the good Russian realist painter Ilya Repin, Malyavin is unusual among the Russian artists of the times for having a peasant background. It is possibly due to this that his paintings often depict peasant life, and his most famous work, Whirlwind, shows peasant women dancing.
