Defense of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra

The artist is Miloradovich

Sergey Miloradovich, who was a native of the priest’s family, devoted his work to the history of Russian clergy and monasticism. He was especially attracted by the sprinkle plots, which he knew how to give compositional, coloristic and emotional dynamics. In the painting “Defense of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra”, the artist portrayed how the defenders of the monastery reflect the next enemy assault, overshadowed by icons and prayers of hierarchs. Through the powder smoke, against the background of the alarming sky, the beautiful domes of the Assumption Cathedral, laid down by Ivan the Terrible, are drawn.
