The High Nordic Art of Viktor Vasnetsov

Viktor Mikhaylovich Vasnetsov (1848 – 1926) was a Russian painter specializing in mythological and historical themes and one of the founders of the nationalist romantic movement, the so-called “Russian Revival.” After graduating from the seminary, Vasnetsov moved to St. Petersburg, where he studied art at the Imperial Academy. Famed in his lifetime, he was given a noble title by Nicholas II just a few years before the revolution.
