Russian Icon Collection, an online gallery dedicated to the timeless art of traditional icon painting, supports Russian culture and arts both in the United States and Russia. The gallery makes donations to Russian art institutions and cultural organizations, takes part in specialized international conferences and webinars, assists in organizing exhibitions of any scale, publishes topic-related articles and books, and many more. A proud member of the Russian art community, Russian Icon Collection makes every effort to support all forms of Russian art and icon painting in particular.
Russian Icon Collection is a dedicated online gallery that is aimed at preserving and sharing the amazing art of icon painting around the world. The gallery features an outstanding collection of antique Russian icons, each presented with a detailed description to help art lovers better understand the religious image and its meaning. All icons come from private art collections and are not displayed to the public at other galleries and museums.
Russian Icon Collection dedicates much time to supporting Russian culture and arts in the United States and Russia. In addition to making donations to the Russian art museums and other institutions, the gallery participates in various events, live and online. One of them, a virtual conference titled “Collecting Orthodoxy: A History and a Look Towards the Future,” will be held on June 11-12. The conference, which is hosted by the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, MA, will discuss the history of collecting antique Russian icons and other Orthodox objects in the West, starting from the 19th century to the present. The list of speakers includes some of the leading experts in the field, from academics to collectors and dealers. Russian Icon Collection will also join the conference to support the Museum of Russian Icons and its efforts to tell the world about the history of collecting Orthodox items.
Russian Icon Collection collaborates with many reputable Russian art historians and experts on a variety of projects. One of them is the Russian Icon Book that was created in partnership with the Museum of the Russian Icon in Moscow. The project became possible thanks to Sergey Khodorkovskiy and Anna Ivannikova, two prominent Russian icon specialists who provided detailed descriptions for the featured antique icons. The book is now available in a digital version only, but it will soon be released in print.
