Settlement of the Lord

The artist is Belsky

In the 1980 Formation Catalog – “Meeting”, “Annunciation”, “Christmas” and “Holy Catherine” are included as works performed by one artist, and dated the second half of the 18th century. In different publications, Andrei Matveeva is confident or supposedly considered to be the works of Andrei.

Repeated studies conducted in the timing in 2019 made it possible to date the image “Annunciation”, “Christmas” and “Holy Catherine” by the second half of the 18th century, and “Setting” of the middle of the 18th century, that is, an earlier time.

The same dimensions of the patterns of iconostases cut out according to the patterns made it possible to use images of different times in one iconostasis. The “Set”, probably the earliest of the images of the Church of the Nativity of Christ on the sands and possessing all the signs of the author’s manner of Ivan Belsky, could serve, for example, the original for a similar image from the upper temple of the St. Petersburg Cathedral of St. Petersburg, written by Fedot Kolokolnikov around 1760.
