    Vasnetov…didn’t know him and I thought it looked Pre-Raphaelite, so I was culling through those suspects to no avail. Turns out he was a contemporary of the Pre-Raphs; some of his subject matter & style fits with theirs.

    Wow, I’d never heard of that guy before but I love his stuff! Especially the six-winged seraph here: http://www.abcgallery.com/V/vasnetsov/vasnetsov45.html
