A ROCOCO RUSSIAN ICON OF CHRIST, 1779. In this finely painted waist-up depiction, Christ is shown delivering a blessing and holding an orb, a symbol of His cosmic rule - based on Western imagery. The painted icon clearly finds its origins in the Moscow Armory School as evidenced by the subtle shading and gilt highlights typical of earlier Ushakov icons. The entire image is overlaid with an ornate silver repoussé and chased oklad with attached halo, hallmarked Moscow and dated 1779. 12.25 inches x 10.5 inches (31 x 26.5 cm).
