Russian artist, Mikhail V. Nesterov was an associate of the Peredvizhniki, and an early exponent of the Symbolist movement of the late 19th century. The Hermit [1889] was his first major success working with religious subjects. He was not permitted to use religious themes under the Soviet regime turning instead to portraits of notable figures. This magnificent replica is skillfully hand painted in Russia, by Igor V. Shepel. Mounted within a simple wooden frame. About 7" x 9". 

 
About the artist: Igor Viktorovich Shepel was born in 1961 in the city of Rostov-on-the-Don.

Shepel is a member of the Union of Artists of Russia and participates in many regional and personal exhibitions. He works and teaches at the Grekov Art School. He specializes in museum quality art done in oil, Russian masterpiece replicas as well as replicas of Western masters, both complex and simple.
