Is it possible to create views using the REST API?

I cannot find any documentation that explicitly states whether or not it is possible to create views using the REST API (or programmatically in general). 

I have a use case where I need to create a large number of views, and using the REST API I can navigate through the views/folders/locations where these new views need to be created.  Ideally I would be able to create the new views as my program walks through the existing vault structure.

I have tested some code (python) and I am able to create objects of various classes and assign properties, but I have not found a way to create a view from the REST API.

Is this possible?
