Apollinary Vasnetsov Paintings added to GeocodedArt

Novodevichy Convent Towers

Painting by Apollinary Vasnetsov (1856–1933)  Many of this artist's works have a scrubbed-air look about them as if a vigorous wind had just re-newed the environment and re-set the atmosphere for new endeavors.  He did town views with a variety of mediums and subjects, and despite painting a large number of scenes across Russia, he showed almost all of them in glorious sunlight and in warm weather.  There are pastoral views as well as the landmark structures in his works; unnamed town views as well as re-creations of views of past centuries, with considerable detailed paid to the dress and livelihood of people on the streets.
