Early 19th century, Central Russia Mother of God by Vladimir Egg tempera on wood and Riza with orific embroidery, 53.5 x 42.5 x 4 cm This work presents the iconography of one of the most venerated and famous Orthodox icons in the world: La Vladimirskaya or Vladimir's Theotokos Medieval chronicles report that this icon of the Virgin by an anonymous Byzantine artist arrived from Constantinople to Kiev around 1130. At the behest of the Grand Prince Andrew Bogoliubsky in 1155 it was brought to the Dormition Cathedral of the city of Vladimir, from which the icon takes its name. The fame of the miracles linked to the painting, already widespread for having saved Constantinople from the Turks, is amplified
