The joy of the righteous in the Lord by Victor Vasnetsov

For more than ten years Vasnetsov gave his paintings to the Vladimir Cathedral in Kiev, dedicated to the 900th anniversary of the baptism of Rus. The painter called this work his “way to the light.”

The concept of painting, created by A. Prahov, was based on the idea of comprehending Russian Orthodoxy as the main conductor of Russia in the space of world culture. Vasnetsov created about 400 sketches and, with the help of his assistants, covered with frescoes about 2000 square meters. meters of the walls of the temple.

Written by Vasnetsov in the apse of the altar, the figure of Our Lady

with the Child is one of the tops of Russian iconography; in this image, the search for the ideal of spiritual beauty, undertaken by the artist, received its completion. At the top is a reproduction of the fresco “The Joy of the Righteous of the Lord”, located in the drum of the main dome.
