Богородица са Христом (Умиљеније) - пре рестаурације

The Theotokos with Christ (Eleousa or the Virgin of Tenderness)
Work of icon painter Mitrofan, ca. 1764

While staying with his assistant, Nestor, in Hungary, the icon painter Mitrofan painted several icons for purposes of private devotion. The icon depicts the Theotokos with the infant Christ, Whose head clings to His mother’s cheek, while touching her face with His right hand. At the same time, the Theotokos holds the baby Christ’s stretched out legs with her right arm.

The conservation of the icon took place at the beginning of 2023. The wooden base was in a good condition, though peeling in the paint coat was not evident.
