The founder of the Russian Icon Museum bought one icon at a yard sale, which led to another and another and ... he opened a museum for his collection. At our arrival, the museum assigned a docent for a few explanations and it ended up being two hours of the most interesting tour of the galleries.
Thanks to the engaged Docent, her extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for Iconography gave us a special appreciation and understanding not only of the art works and its technique, but also for the faith and teachings related to them.
Thank you Laura for the photos!
After the museum, we continued to a grill around the corner of the museum for a delicious lunch in the town of Clinton.
