Survived Icons from Yaroslavl Art Museum Exhibited in Moscow

After the October Revolution of 1917, the Russian Orthodox Church was persecuted, the churches were demolished and icons destroyed.

      This trend was observed throughout this country. In Yaroslavl, like in lots of other places, religious people sought to save icons. First, they were transferred from churches to restoration workshops. Afterwards the works were hidden in the underground of the Metropolitan Chambers.

      Particular icons managed to be kept intact. Nowadays they are displayed in the halls and stored in the archives of the Yaroslavl Art Museum. These survived artifacts will be exhibited at the History Museum of Moscow till the end of May, 2019.

      The exposition “Acquisition. Icons from the Collection of the Yaroslavl Art Museum” includes 36 icons that date back to the 17th – 19th centuries. Their restoration was carried out in the 1990s. There are truly unique works among them. Samples of rare iconography deserve special attention, as well as what used to be the door to the diaconal of one of the Orthodox churches in 1682.
