Boris Diodorov is a Russian illustrator known for his popular interpretations of classics, particularly works by Hans Christian Anderson like The Snow Queen And The Little Mermaid. He is also known for his illustrations for “Vinni-Pukh”, Boris Zakhoder’s translated version of “Winnie the Pooh”.

Diodorov’s illustrations have a nice feeling reminiscent of the turn of the century “Golden Age” illustrators.

I can’t find a dedicated website for Diodorov, so I’ve linked to other articles and postings that showcase his work.

  1. I was a model in the American National Exhibition in Moscow in Russia in 1959 and met an artist named Boris Diodorov. He and his friend painted eight portraits of me. I was given two portraits but now only one remains with me. This portrait is on the back cover of my book, Black Girl in Moscow, a Memoir. ( I also has a photo of Boris as a young art student.
    I would love to know if the illustrations are of the Boris I knew or another artist with the same name.
