Through years of experimentation, Kuindzhi developed a highly original technique, which he applied to an increasingly typical, at times almost visionary, treatment of subjects such as snow-covered mountains and moonlight.

More > for him, but he says it is the name by which he was always known, and it was certainly used as early as 1469.
