SAINT DEMETRIUS OF SALONICA. End of 14th or beginning of 15th century, Museum of Applied Art, Belgrade.
The manner of painting is close to that in an icon of Saint Demetrius in the Museum of Applied Arts, Belgrade, although the proportions and drawing in the latter case are still archaic. This icon originated in Salonica, and was painted for pilgrims who came to worship at the tomb of Saint Demetrius; despite its secure and noble draftsmanship, its gaudy coloring betrays the fact that it is a mass-produced work.
