Born in Krasnoiarsk, Surikov is one of the great masters of history painting and he occupies a special place in Russian culture. Vasily Surikov was very knowledgeable about Russian history, and his oil paintings deal with crucial moments. In paintings like Boyarina Morozova, Surikov depicts the theme of inevitability in history, which knows no pity and allows no escape. Vasily Surikov also praises the courageand self-sacifice of the Russian troops. His Suvarov Crossing the Alps is a hymn to the national spirit and dedication of the Russian people. He painted large canvasses and filled them with swaying crowds torn this way and that by conflicting emotions.
