A FINE RUSSIAN ICON OF THE BIRTH OF THE MOTHER OF GOD, 16TH CENTURY, VLADIMIR-SUZDAL.  Of larger size and good proportions. At left Anna, the mother of Mary, is depicted reclining on a bed after having given birth. Following Jewish tradition, servants at the foot of the bed, wash the newborn Mary and swaddle her and cool her with a fan shown lower right. Behind Anna are two servants serving her food and further back still and to the right is Anna’s husband Joakhim who looks on. The draped red cloth along the upper margin strung between two buildings indicates that this is an interior scene. The Birth of the Most Holy Mother of God is one of the twelve great Church feast days celebrated on September 8th (September 21st Western Calendar).  The size and shape of the offered icon would suggest it once formed part of the festival tier of an iconostasis. 19.5 inches x 13.5 inches (49.5 x 34.5 cm).

Estimate:  $5,500 - 7,500   € 4,950 - 6,750
