A VERY FINE RUSSIAN ICON OF THE GUARDIAN ANGEL & SAINTS, PROBABLY DIKAREV, C.1900. Within an arched reserve, a gathering of twelve saints with the Archangel Michael at center and two angels holding the Holy Napkin aloft at top. Executed on a graduated shaded background of dark to light blue, each figure exquisitely painted with great detail and extensive use of gilt highlighting. Included are Saints Anna, Dmitry, Alexandra, Lydia, Paraskeva, the Venerable Theoktista, the Apostle Paul, Elena (Helen), the Venerable Vasiliy, John the Forerunner, the Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Great Prince Vladimir, and Vasiliy the Great. The panel with double arched kovcheg and highly finished on the sides and verso. An exceptional icon of the highest quality. 12.25 inches x 10.25 inches (31 x 26 cm).

The highly accomplished iconographer, Mikhail Ivanovich Dikarev, worked first in the icon-painting village of Mstyora; then later, moved to Moscow at the end of the 1870s and worked in the Chirikov Brothers' workshop. His icons were highly prized by both the aristocracy and the Imperial Court.
