Scope and content

File consists of graphic material such as photographs, colour slides, negatives and proof sheets related to icons. File also contains an article on one of the icons and several postcards depicting icons. Some of the icons photographed in this series appear in Nouwen's book "Behold the beauty of the Lord: Praying with icons" and it is possible that these photographs were used in the book. The icons include: "The savior of Zvenigorod", "The virgin of Vladimir", "The Holy Trinity", and the icon that Nouwen used for his 25th anniversary ordination card. The file also contains two photographs, Item P2939 of an unidentified icon and Item P2940 a photograph of a cheery blossom tree in full bloom.
