Description

Created by the hand of American iconographer Brother Simeon Davis, this original icon of Saint John the Evangelist exemplifies the radiant colors, fine detail, and fidelity to classical iconography that has made the Monastery Icons collection the most beloved Christian art over the past thirty-three years. This icon is one of a kind and will no longer be available once it is sold.

Painted in the classic style of Byzantine portraits of the Evangelist. The gold-striped band over the saint's shoulder shows his status as a son of the heavenly king, echoing the ancient tradition in which a king or emperor's son wore just such an emblem.

This icon is painted on 1/4-inch non-tempered artist's hardboard measuring 11" wide by 14" tall. The artist used classic egg tempera. The background is hand applied 23 kt gold leaf applied using the varnish gilt method. The icon has a protective artist's grade arcylic varnish. Created in the year 1985, the painting includes the artist's "signature" in tiny letters: "By the hand of Simeon 1985," as is traditional in iconography.

Sale or transfer of ownership of this icon does not convey any rights in the work itself. Any copying of the work, public distribution of the work, or preparation of a derivative work is strictly prohibited without the written express permission of Monastery Icons.

Shipping and handling for this icon is $36.00.

"Icons raise the soul and the mind to the realm of the spirit."

Photios Konotoglou, Greek iconographer
