Full English description on request
In questa tavola San Marco è raffigurato nell’atto di scrivere il proprio Vangelo, appoggiato ad un tavolino.
Alla sua sinistra compare il leone, che è il simbolo che lo accompagna.
Questa icona proviene quasi sicuramente o da una Porta Regale di una Iconostasi o direttamente da uno degli angoli dell’Iconostasi stessa.
Il fondo in tonalità di blu, il fine disegno, le lumeggiature e il minuzioso lavoro dedicato a tutta la tavola, con tutti i particolari ben in evidenza, con sapiente utilizzo dell’oro, sono elementi tipici della Scuola di M’stera, una tra le più importanti Scuole Iconografiche di tutta la Russia.
Importante tavola molto rara, anche per la particolare forma e per l’eccezionale raffinatezza pittorica.
Molto buono lo stato di conservazione generale.
