Product description

The Ukrainian Icon
From the blurb: ''Icon Painting, the ultimate expression of Orthodox Christian Art, reached its zenith in the Ukraine between the 11th and 18th centuries. This book spans the entire period, showing the development of the style. The Ukrainian icon is a surprising synthesis of the traditions of eastern Byzantine art and the stylistic characteristics of Russian icon-painting. The introduction of this book explains the stages of development over 5 centuries in the Ukraine's major Centres of art- Kiev, Chernigov, Transcarpathia, Galicia, and Volhynia- and discusses the life and work of the masters of icon-painting. Despite the strict stylistic considerations imposed by the genre, Ukrainian icons display a striking range and variety of background and context.''
