Viktor Vasnetsov

 

(b Lop’yal, Vyatka province [now Kirov region], 15 May 1848; d Moscow, 23 July 1926).

Painter, designer and graphic artist. He played a leading role in the evolution of Russian art from 19th-century realism towards Art Nouveau with a national historical slant. The son of a priest, he studied at a theological seminary in Vyatka (1862–7); then, developing a passion for drawing, he entered the drawing school of the Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, St Petersburg, and studied under Ivan Kramskoy in 1867–8. He perfected his skills at the Academy of Arts, St Petersburg, in 1869–75 and joined the WANDERERS in 1878.
