House of icons

  • Traben-Trarbach

Preserves the legacy and lifework of one of the most important iconographers of “modern icons” in Western Europe Alexej Saweljew

The stateless iconographer Alexej Saweljew established and directed the unique »Living Icon Center« in Graach on the Mosel from 1976 - 1982 and in Traben-Trarbach/Kautenbach from 1983 - 1995. The Icon Center was named after him after his death in 1996 and moved to the new “House of Icons” in Trarbach in 2004, which features an expanded exhibition and displays for school children.
