1800s Fabulous Antique Moscow School Painting Russian Icon Of Kazan Virgin For Sale
1800s FABULOUS MOSCOW SCHOOL PAINTING
RUSSIAN ICON of KAZAN VIRGIN.
Size 10.5 by 12". Hand painted with egg tempera. Gesso on wood panel. Very good condition. Low kovcheg (raised borders).
This type of Virgin and Child, presenting the Christ Child standing rather than sitting erect on His Mothers arm, is a 16th century Russian variant on the Byzantine Hodegetria Mother of God. Both Icons are theological, emphasizing the divine nature of Christ, the wisdom of God Incarnate, rather than the human relationship between Mother and Child. This is particularly marked in the Kazan image, where Christ is self-supporting, and blesses the faithful in a hieratic frontal pose.
Authenticity guaranteed. Certificate of the Authenticity available upon request.
