Icon - Andronikov monastery  

The Andronikov monastery is most famous now because the master Icon artist, Andrei Rublyov was a monk here. Now there is a museum in the Trapezni Palace. This was opened in 1960 on the anniversary of the 600th year of Rublyov. It contains about 2000 precious icons and other art works collected from throughout Russia, but actually not by the master himself. Here is an icon depicting the Holy Trinity.
