Created in the XV century in Novgorod, images of Archangels Michael and Gabriel are the
oldest ones in the collection of icons of the Museum of Private Collections. Not quite
successfully transferred postures; interpretation of clothes as large flat color planes that only
occasionally are disturbed by lines of folds; the proportions of faces with narrow foreheads and
relatively heavy bottom part - all these features are typical to the outstanding work of the
provincial master.
