St. Luke as Evangelist and Iconographer

* 123. SOFRONOV, PIMEN 1898-1973

St. Luke as Evangelist and Iconographer signed.

Tempera on canvas, 208 by 130 cm.
20,000-40,000 Pounds


This was one of Sofronov’s favourite themes, with a small variation, which he used on his letterhead and business cards.

His signature as “Sofronow” with a “w” makes it likely that the artist finished this work shortly before or after he emigrated to the United States.
See written catalogue for details.
