Surikov, V. I. Taking a Snow Town. 1891

Taking a Snow Town While its subject is not as celebrated as those of either "Yermak Conquering Siberia" (1895, see ImageBase) or "Stepan Razin" (1906, see ImageBase), "Taking a Snow Town" is alive with heart-pounding action, the product of both the artist's imagination and his ability to capture an exciting or poetic moment.
