The Bogatyrs (Богатыри), aka The Three Bogatyrs, is arguably one of Russia's most famous paintings. Completed in 1898 by Viktor Vasnetsov (1848-1926), it depicts the dignity of the mythical Russian medieval knights Ilya Muromets, Alyosha Popovich, and, Dobrynya Nikitich (Илья Муромец, Алеша Попович, Добрыня Никитич). These legendary, but fictional, men are based on historical figures from the era of Kievan Rus that were cast in impossibly heroic roles in Russian folk tales and bylinas (былины), which are epic narrative poems. This striking replica was accurately and skillfully painted in Russia about 25-30 years ago, by Igor V. Shepel. It is mounted within a handsome gold leaf frame. About 22" x 15".  1 only.

 
About the artist: Igor Viktorovich Shepel was born in 1961 in the city of Rostov-on-the-Don. From 1978-1984 he studied at the Rostov College of Arts (named after Mitrofan Borisovich Grekov 1882-1934, founding father of Soviet military theme and panoramic painting). 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. He is especially fond of painting landscapes as well as renditions of famous Russian icons. Many of his works are in museums, galleries and private collections in Russia, Germany, Brazil, and Canada.
