Russian Artist (19th century):
Icon of The Virgin and Child
A244; oil on panel; 17 x 14 cm.
Presented by the Revd Greville John Chester, 1887; WA1887.1.
An icon of which only the faces of the Virgin and Child are fully painted. The rest of the figures, presumably to be covered by a metal revetment (riza), was left in a sketchy condition.
