Russian Icons

Archangel Gabriel

Notes:
The Archangel Gabriel (Archangel with the Golden Hair) Moscow With its dignified treatment of the figure and calm pathos, this early and well-known icon, like the icon of St. Demetrios of Thessalonica (Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow), reflects the style seen in the late twelfth-century frescoes at the Monastery of St. John the Divine on Mt. Patmos.
