Ivan Bilibin
There are a lot wonderful images by this Russian illustrator on the Wikimedia Commons under the category of Tales by Ivan Bilibin.  The image below that I first saw via Suicide Blonde was my favorite.  It was from the tale Vasilisa the Beautiful.  You can read the full tale here or the synopsis here.
