Alexander Bubnov
Russian artists, including representatives of the so-called "large style"—Vasily Vasnetsov, Ilya Repin, Valentin Serov, Mikhail Nesterov, Nikolai Rerikh (Roerich), and later in Soviet times, Pavel Korin, Andrei Bubnov, Alexander Gerasimov, and many others—often “paid tribute” to Russian epics’ illustration.
