Antique Russian icon ‘Mother of God Unexpected Joy’ from the 19th century. Hand-painted with egg tempera colour on a wooden panel with chalk background. Typical method of icon production in the 18th and 19th century of tsarist Russia.
The painting is very detailed. Perfectly matched colour contrasts and very warm colours. The painting has craquelure. Partial restorations are present (see photos). All saints are labelled. The icon is in good condition with typical age-related signs of wear and tear in the shape of scratches, minimal paint flaking and bumps especially at the edges and outer trims. Originally, the icon had an oklad. Both transverse wooden laths are mounted on the back.
All details are clearly visible in the photos. The photos are part of the description.
