This is by the Russian artist Vasnetov, who also painted the wonderful Mother of God pictured below. More of his work can be viewed here.

    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.
