Product description

Product Description

Icon painting has reached its zenith in Ukraine between the 11th and 18th centuries. This art is appealing because of its great openness to other influences – the obedience to the rules of Orthodox Christianity in its early stages, the borrowing from Roman heritage or later to the Western breakthroughs – combined with a never compromised assertion of a distinctly Slavic soul and identity.
This book presents a handpicked and representative selection of works from the 11th century to the late Baroque period.

About the Author

Nikodim Pavlovich Kondakov was an art historian specialised in Russian culture and history. His extensive research on Russian Orthodox culture lead him to become the eminent specialist of Christian iconography. A true man of science, he was often the first to interpret the origin of certain icons.
