Icono, Juan el Bautista (1) - Madera - siglo XIX

Antique Russian icon ‘winged St. John the Baptist’ with biblical scenes, including ‘Birth of H. John’ Hand-painted with egg tempera colour on a wooden panel with chalk background. Typical method of icon production in the 18th and 19th century of tsarist Russia. This is a relatively rare depiction. The painting is quite detailed and contains age-related craquelure. Vivid colours. Perfectly matched colour contrasts. The icon is in satisfactory condition with typical age-related signs of wear and tear in the form of scratches, paint flaking and bumps, especially at the edges, and dirt (see photos). Partial restorations are present. Pretty much in the middle of the icon, there is a burn mark from a candle (see photos). All saints are labelled. Two transverse wooden laths are missing on the back. The icon is slightly curved. Some of the labels are difficult to read. In general a beautiful, antique icon with a rare motif. A piece for every collector and enthusiast of Russian icon painting.

All details are clearly visible in the photos. The photos are part of the description.
