Description: A FINELY PAINTED ICON SHOWING THE MANDYLION Russian, circa 1700 Tempera on wood panel. The face of Christ impressed on an undecorated cloth with its two upper corners knotted, the only additions being the rim of the halo, Christ's abbreviated name and the Greek title of the represented subject written in Cyrillic characters. With slightly squinted eyes, Christ's melancholic gaze directed towards the beholder, his realistic features devoid of sharp outlines, instead modelled with a variety of shades; the preparatory base of the flesh painted in olive, the shape and volume of the characteristics defined with red and beige hues, the shadows in tones of brown. Short scratch, minimally restored. FEINE IKONE MIT DEM MANDYLION Russland, um 1700 Holz-Einzeltafel mit zwei Stirnseiten-Sponki. Eitempera auf Kreidegrund, Nimben vergoldet. 36,3 x 31,5 cm. Darstellung des Antlitz Christi auf einem weißen, von Engeln präsentiertem Tuch. Sehr feine, plastische Modellierung der Inkarnate mit Schattierungen in Rot und Braun. Kurzer Kratzer, punktuelle Retuschen.
