The exhibition and catalogue of the Russian icons are the first presentation of this important cultural heritage in Slovenia. The last exhibition centred on orthodox icons in Slovenia dates to 1964, when they were presented in the National Gallery, at an exhibition of more than eighty so-called “Yugoslav” icons. However, since that exhibition anyone interested in the cultural heritage of Orthodox Europe only had just a few opportunities to see icons in a museum or gallery context, near and far. Therefore the exhibition at the City Museum of Ljubljana and the accompanying catalogue, which also contains articles written by curators from Russian museums, is especially valuable for our space after more than half of a century.
