The artist is unknown

Taking into account the amateur nature of painting, we can assume that the picture was written by someone from the family of Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich. All Grand Ducal Children studied drawing, collected their own collections of works of art. Pictures performed with his own hands were a traditional gift of children for birthdays and parents. According to the memoirs of Grand Duke Georgy Konstantinovich: “In the prayer, in the father, in the marble palace, between the cabinet and the corridor, many images hung and the lamp always glowed. Every day they brought to the chapel from our house church the icon of the saint whose was the day. These icons, all in the same style, gave my uncles, Sergey Alexandrovich and Pavel Alexandrovich “.
