Russia - "Minusinskaya step'" painting by V. I. Surikov (RU-21605)

This is my first official card from Russia :)
Fortunately, I can speak Russian, so this time I won't have to ask for help to understand, what it is :) This card shows a "Minusinskaya step'" ("Минусинская степь") painting by V. I. Surikov (В. И. Суриков), was the foremost Russian painter of large-scale historical subjects. His major pieces are among the best-known paintings in Russia. This painting is now in Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.
