Vasily Vasilievich Vereshchagin (also spelled Vereschagin) (1842-1904) was a Russian Realist painter of the second half of the 19th Century, best known for his depictions of battle scenes, both contemporary and historical. He was one of the first Russian painters to be widely recognized outside of his native country and had numerous exhibitions in Europe and the USA. Although his success was founded on the subject matter of war and combat, and despite being a highly decorated military officer, the artist was an outspoken critic of all war, which often put him in conflict with the ruling powers of the time.
