Four Paintings By Russian Orthodox Artist, Dmitry Petrov

Dmitry Petrov is a young artist in Moscow who paints in a realist style. Not to be confused with the American artist of the same name who died in 1986, the Russian Dmitry Petrov has three permanent personal exhibitions in Samara, and his work can be found in galleries and private collections in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Great Britain, Germany, France, and the United States.

Many of Petrov’s paintings are still lifes or landscapes, some of which include famous churches or monasteries. Here are four particularly beautiful examples, all oil on canvas, with religious themes.

1. “Easter Moscow” (2005)
