Being the schoolboy of a spiritual seminary, simultaneously he studied drawing; he also helped the artist Ý. Andrioli paint the cathedral. Since 1868 to 1875 Victor Vasnetsov studied in the Petersburg Academy of Applied Arts. He was taught by P.V. Basin, V.V Vereshagin, and P.P. Chistyakov. In 1878 he moved to Moscow, and joined to the Peredvizhniki Association. The Vasnetsov's greatest and significant work is "The Bogatyrs" (1881-1898).
