Viktor Vasnetsov (1848-1926) was a Russian artist who, while not directly affiliated with the Symbolist movement, nevertheless exhibits many of its traits in his work: religious iconography, mythology, dark sensuality. He was one of the key figures in the evolution of Russian art in the nineteenth century as it moved from realism to something that was more in the style of Art Nouveau. In later years, he worked in Kiev with Mikhail Vrubel, whose work was admired by many Symbolists, and had a lot of influence on the younger artist.
