VLADIMIR, March 25./TASS/. Ancient frescoes by Andrei Rublev, a famous medieval painter of Orthodox icons and frescos, were found in the Russian city of Vladimir, once one of the medieval capitals of Russia and now a major tourist attraction making part of the Golden Ring of historic Russian cities northeast of Moscow, chief engineer at a local restauration company, Vladimir Kislov, told Tass.
"This is a rather big section, a large wall pier in the northern part of the iconostasis," said the chief engineer at Vladimirrestavratsii.
The iconostasis was a gift to the cathedral from Empress Catherine II at the end of the 18th century. During restoration work on the iconostasis, specialists have already reached images of prophets dating back to 1189. Large-scale restoration work is currently under way at the cathedral, expected to continue until October 2016.
The Assumption Cathedral built in 1158-1160 is on the UNESCO’s world heritage list. It is only cathedral where frescoes of Andrey Rublev and his friend and colleague Daniil Cherny have survived on an area of more than 300 square meters. These are fragments of "The Last Judgment", "Advent", "Transfiguration", "Epiphany" and "Thanksoffering".
