   At 22 he became a paid artist of the Silver Chamber, affiliated with the Armory Prikaz. The bright, fresh colors and exquisite, curving lines of his proto-baroque icons caught the eye of Patriarch Nikon, who introduced Simon to the tsar Alexei Mikhailovich. He became a great favourite with the royal family and was eventually (1664) assigned to the Kremlin Armory, run by an educated boyar Bogdan Khitrovo.
