The Bogatyrs, heroic warrior knights of the court of Vladimir I of Kiev, scan the horizon in this heralded work, seeking to bring their legendary wit, courage, spiritual power and integrity into play while protecting their homeland. So inspired by the rich folklore of his country that he founded a whole new style in Russian painting, Pre-Raphaelite artist Vasnetsov specialized in mythological and historic subjects. This work is his most famous. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
