1800s Russian Orthodox Icon Depicting St. Nicholas

RAG AND BONE
Antique Original Tempera on Panel Religious Portrait Painting

Depicting Saint Nicholas of Myra (AD 270-343) who is commonly portrayed in Russian Orthodox iconography, perhaps because he has so many patronages, including children, coopers, sailors, fishermen, merchants, broadcasters, the falsely accused, repentant thieves, brewers, pharmacists, archers, pawnbrokers, Aberdeen, Galway, Russia, Greece, Hellenic Navy, Liverpool, Bari, Siggiewi, Moscow, Amsterdam, Lorraine, Royal School of Church Music and Duchy of Lorraine, students in various cities and countries around Europe.

Of course, his legendary gift-giving later gave rise to Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Chris Cringle etc. etc.

Acquired from the previous owner from the Maria Andipas Icon Gallery, London SW3 in 1990.

Originating from Central Russia and c.1800 in date.

Being a well-loved icon there is wear and tear as you can see from the photos but we think this adds to its charm and overall aesthetic.

Overall measurements: 39cm x 31cm x 5cm.
