Featured image: Resurrection is an 1887 watercolor study by Mikhail Vrubel (Ukrainian, 1856–1910). It was submitted to the jury for inclusion in the Cathedral of Saint Volodymyr, which was under construction in Kyiv, Ukraine. Sadly, the jury rejected his submission and Vrubel’s iconography never appeared in the Cathedral.
