Lot 314, Auction 5/30/2017: 19th C. Russian Icon - Mother of God

Eastern Europe, Russia, ca. 19th century CE. Expertly painted on brass sheet, an icon depicting the Mother of God, presenting the Virgin and Child in wonderful vestments of voluminous drapery with folds of fabric cascading over the holy pair and details to delineate the patterns and textures of the fabrics, as well as an integral frame and halos in repousse. The strongly modeled visages shaded with stunning sfumato to produce soft, hazy personages suggest a Western European Renaissance influence. Size: 3.25" W x 4.25" H (8.3 cm x 10.8 cm)
