The Romanovs and their Icons - A Presentation by Wendy Salmond

For the Romanov family and the Russian court, the giving and receiving of icons marked every important event in public and private life, from christenings, weddings and anniversaries, to recovery from illness and the miraculous escape from death. This richly illustrated lecture explores the role icons played in Russian court culture under the last Romanov tsar, Nicholas II.


Image Description - Silver icon triptych with Saint Nicholas, Saint Alexandra, Archangel Michael, and Archangel Gabriel, 1907. Private collection, on extended loan to the Georgia Museum of Art.
