Unique Russian Icon of The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades

The beautiful 18th-century icon of The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades, with Church Feasts in 12 border scenes, from the private collection. The iconography of this piece, which was painted in Central Russia, attests to the artist’s dependence on Western European art. The energetic poses of the depicted figures, flying draperies, floating vestments, and the intense color scheme are very similar to Baroque art, making this icon particularly interesting and compelling.
