Christ Emmanuel

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The traditional style of the painting in this icon of Christ Emmanuel contrasts with the Baroque ornament of its cover, in which the young Christ's nimbus and the surrounding four evangelists are depicted in chased silver and the border is in silver and filigree enamel. The silver frame bears three assayer's marks: the 'St. George' stamp of Moscow, and the stamps of two inspectors, through which the icon can be dated. Elaborate icon covers such as the one here became increasingly popular from the seventeenth through the nineteenth century.
