Boris Zvorykin - Illustration to “The Tale of the Dead Princess and Seven Knights” by Alexander Pushkin, 1890th

That’s good example of so-called “russian style”, that was created in the end of the 19th century. Well, not created - reconstructed.

Zvorykin was the first one who introduced medieval and traditional Russian painting to the modern art.

russian-style:

Valentin Serov - After suppression, 1905.
Here Tsar Nicholas II with a tennis racket under his arm (he was a passionate tennis player) awards the generals for suppressing the popular revolt. The row behind seems to be corpses, and the person in the carriage looks like the Tsarina.
During the first russian revolution Serov made several critical drawings. Serov did not support authority’s actions though he  portrayed the members of the imperial family several years before that. (And since 1905 he refused such offers).

"When I was a kid, I believed you would become a mermaid when you went in the water to swim".
I really loved the little mermaid as a kid growing up so I had the warped perception you became a mermaid when you entered the water ahaha. This is me learning to swim with my cousin! This piece is for a gallery show at work.

That baby is adorable! A little mermaid outfit for a little one awwww
