Description

The church was built as a reliquary in 1345 on the money of a Novgorod boyar Ontsifor Zhabin. It was painted with frescoes half a century later, probably by Artel of masters from Athos or South Slavic lands. Kovalevo paintings received worldwide fame in the 20th century thanks to the efforts of restorers of A. P. Grekov and v. B. Grekov. It was their first experience of the restoration of monumental painting and returning it on the walls of a temple. You can see the result of the recovery at the exhibition in the church of St George in the Marketplace (Yaroslav’s Courtyard).
