Yuri Vasnetsov

1900 - 1973

На русском языке смотрите в конце этой страницы.

Yuri was born to the family of a priest in the old Russian town of Vyatka. Fascinated by traditional clay toys and folk culture, he started painting and drawing from an early age. 

After leaving Vyatka School for Boys, he moved to Petrograd (now St.Petersburg) to study at the Academy of Art. 

Yuri adored his wife and two daughters; loved a fun and artistic family celebration; fishing and mushrooming in the countryside.

He was a painter, graphic artist and stage designer, but is most famous as an illustrator, conjuring images in which animals wear beautiful clothes and have their own unique identities. Vasnetsov’s quirky and striking images take us away from modern reality to a wonderful and colourful world of fairy tale.

Vasnetsov's illustrations bring drops of magic into everyday life, using bright, playful images that take us beyond modern stresses to a time when we felt comfort and child-like innocence. The bold simplicity of Vasnetsov's style, coupled with his attention to detail make his work accessible and memorable to all ages, a perfect complement to happy moments in your life.
