Originally called Snowdrop, this fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm has entertained our imagination for many years. There is also a Russian version of this story, the Princess and the Seven Bogatyrs. It is fitting therefore to illustrate the Brothers Grimm version with a modified Russian fairy tale painting technique.
