The first mention of Andrei in the chronicles appeared only in 1405, indicating that Theophanes the Greek, Prokhor the Elder and monk Andrei Rublev painted the Annunciation Cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin. The second time in the chronicles, Andrei is mentioned in 1408, when he painted with Daniil Cherny in the Assumption Cathedral in Vladimir. The next mention is that in the 1420s he supervised the work at the Trinity Cathedral of the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius. He died on October 17, 1428 in Moscow, in the Andronikov Monastery of the Saviour, where he was buried soon after.
