Boris Godunov was a Russian Tsar who reigned between 1598-1605. He became the subject of a play written by Alexander Pushkin around 1825, which led to this very fine book illustration by Boris Zvorykin. Godunov's reigned at the start of the "time of troubles" in Russia. This magnificent replica is skillfully hand painted in Russia and mounted within a handsome deep black frame. About 9" x 12". Note: the back of the painting incorrectly attributes the original to Ivan Bilibin, another famous Russian book illustrator whose style and talent are a close match to those of Zvorykin.
