Contents Origins: the Orient and Greece -- Use and place of icons in Russia -- The technique -- The 12th to 14th centuries: Suzdal and Novgorod, the Greco-Italian School -- The 145h and 15th centuries: The Suzdal School and Andrei Rublev -- The 16th century -- 17th century -- Timeline of icon painting.
Summary 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.
