Viktor Vasnetsov

Виктор Михайлович Васнецов (1848 – 1926) was an amazing Russian painter and architect whose work I discovered recently in a trip to Russia, while visiting the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. His paintings are huge in size and incredibly stunning with a masterful technique and really cool mythological and historical subjects. Advertisements
