Print of Saint Nicholas 14" x 17". Our knowledge of Russian art begins with the Scythians & other Central Asian art. But what most people think of as Russian art begins when the Russians convert to Christianity around 400 AD. At this time Russian artists begin painting in a more Roman style (that is, the Roman style of about 400 AD). A lot of what they paint is religious pictures called icons. Icons are mostly pictures of saints, or of Jesus or Mary. People thought these pictures had religious power.
