CHRIST PANTOKRATOR WITH TWO KNEELING SAINTS
RUSSIAN, CIRCA 1700
The imposing figure of Christ Pantokrator, standing and frontally represented, bearing the open Gospels, blesses the two saints who are kneeling in supplication at his both sides. Although their names are not inscribed, the two saints could be identified either with Zosima and Savatii of Solovetskii, or with Sergius of Radonesch and Varlaam of Chutyn. The latter couple is identified on a similar icon in the 'De Wijenburgh' collection. The faces are dark and the garments are painted with pastel red and green; their folds are accentuated in white.
23¾ x 28 in. (60.25 x 71.25 cm)
