Do note the similarity in concept between this work and Vasnetsov’s Rejoice in the Lord, All ye Righteous. Did Viktor Mikhailovich ever look at Dürer’s work? It’s a possibility…
It is often erroneously thought that Dürer was a Proddie. Not so, he was an RC… but the Proddies have picked up his art (mainly, as they have produced so little of their own).
