K¯ievsk¯ii Vlad¯imirskii sobor

Collection Data

Description
According to Iaroslav D. Isajevych, "three volume presentation album to Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich (1858-1915) contains many photographs taken at the Kiev studio of G. G. Lazovskii shortly after the consecration of the cathedral. These are excellent reproductions of murals, icons, sculpted panels, as well as furniture and church utensils executed for the cathedral. There are also photographs of general views of the cathedral and of its interiors. Photographs are extremely important since many murals were damaged and some church utensils were lost or destroyed. In many cases, photographs from this album provide the only reliable source of information on the unique works of Orthodox religious art. All three volumes have original leather bindings with identical gilded inscriptions on the upper cover of each volume, namely: 'Ego imperatorskomu vysochestvu gosudariu velikomu kniaziu Konstantinu Konstantinovichu.' Photographs in all three volumes are in good condition, but bindings need restoration. On each are attached large sized photographs. The page and captions are printed (text in Russian)."
