Footnotes

  • The iconographic prototype for Saint Alexander Nevsky can be traced to a famous image created by Vasilii Kuzmich Shebuev (1836). The image of Alexander Nevsky, who was the patron saint of three Russian Emperors (Alexander I (1777-1825), Alexander II (1818-1881), and Alexander III (1845-1894)), was incredibly popular during this period.

    Иконография иконы восходит к известному портрету Александра Невского кисти Василия Шебуева (1836). В связи с тем, что святой был соименен трем правящим императорам России XIX века, его образ был чрезвычайно распространен в это время. В Петербурге число таких икон было весьма значительно, поскольку главная святыня города – мощи великого Князя Александра Невского покоились в одноименном монастыре. По заказу монастыря, писали немало икон с образом святого для поднесения знатным посетителям лавры.
