They started to decorate Christ the Savior Cathedral with murals in 1860. During the next twenty years forty artists took part in the work, among them – H. Siemiradzki, V. Surikov, Vl.Makovsky, V.P. Vereshchagin, I.Pryanishnikov, N.Koshelev, M. Vasiliev, and many others.
When the cathedral of Christ the Savior built on the same place in the late 20th century was to be painted there existed just black and white photographs of the original interior. It turned out that the picture of Fyodor Klages “Internal view of Christ the Savior cathedral in Moscow” (1883) was the only survived “document”, executed in color.
