Famous Rublyovs disputed

Experts at the Tretyakov Gallery have concluded that three famous icons in its collection, the so-called Zvenigorod Deesis, were not painted by Andrei Rublyov, as previously thought.

Based on a comparison with Rublyov’s Trinity and an analysis of the painting surface, the experts have preliminarily concluded that the three icons were not Rublyov’s work. According to Vedomosti, gallery director Zelfira Tregulova said the museum will not immediately change the attribution of one of its most famous pieces of medieval art, and will instead wait for the final publication of the finding at the end of this year.
