Icon Exhibition "Witness to History"
14.11.2020 17:42
Icon Exhibition

The history of the icon displayed at the exhibition is connected with the family of the last Russian Emperor. Before the revolution, it belonged to Colonel Dmitry Nikolaevich Loman (1868-1918), who held several important government posts. He was on friendly terms with Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra Fedorovna D.M. Loman. The empress was the godmother of his son Yuri.

      The icon, created by one of the best icon painters of that time, Nikolai Yemelyanov, was apparently presented to him by the Empress in gratitude for his work on the construction of Theodorovsk Cathedral in Tsarskoye Selo, the main residence of Emperor Nicholas II.

      The icon imitates a three-part Old Russian fold, with the image of the Seraphim-Ponetaevskaya Mother of God. That icon was especially revered by the empress. She kept a copy of that icon with her when in exile, until her tragic death.

      Where: Andrey Rublev Central Museum of Old Russian Culture and Art at the address 10, Andronievskaya square, Moscow.

      When: from November 17, 2020, to January 11, 2021
