This painting represents a manifestation in St. Petersburg, the colours are saturated and the rendering of the work is dazzling. The church depicted is presumably located on the Starirusskaya Ulitsa in St. Petersburg, it is called "Tserkov' Shestakovskoy Ikony Bozhiyey" which could be translated as "The Church of the Shestokovskaya Icon of the Mother of God", the latter is held by the Georgian Orthodox branch of the city.
