Saint Andrew


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Saint Andrew, holding a scroll, looks intently to his left, indicating that the panel once may have formed part of a group of icons with Christ at the center. It may have been placed on the upper tier of an "iconostasis," the screen dividing the sanctuary from the nave in an Orthodox Church. The color scheme of the icon is unusual in its use of extremely bright colors for the saint's robe and a mustard yellow - instead of gold - for the background.
