Nestrov, in 1874, went to Moscow where he enrolled at the Voskresensky Realschule.
In 1877, his counselors suggested that he transfer to the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. In 1879, he began to participate in the school's exhibitions. Two years later, he entered the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts. He was disappointed at the teaching there and returned to Moscow.
While creating a series of historical paintings, he supported himself doing illustrations for magazines and books, including a collection of fairy tales by Pushkin. In 1885, he was awarded the title "Free Artist".
His first major success came with his painting, "The Hermit" which was shown at the seventeenth exhibition of the Peredvizhniki in 1889. Nesterov took an extended trip to Austria, Germany, France and Italy. Upon returning, his painting, "The Vision to the Youth Bartholomew", the first in a series of works on the life of Saint Sergius, was shown at the eighteenth Peredvizhniki exhibition and also purchased by Tretyakov. This series would eventually include fifteen large canvases and occupy him for fifty years. More on Mikhail Vasilyevich Nesterov
In the Gospel of Mark, Salome is among the women who went to Jesus' tomb to anoint his body with spices. "And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him."
