The Ukrainian Icon 11th - 18th centuries (From Byzantine origins to the baroque)

About the eBook

Icon painting, the ultimate expression of Orthodox Christian art, reached its zenith in 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 of icon-painting over five centuries in Ukraine’s major Centres of art - Kyiv, Chernihiv, 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 backgrounds and contexts. The author has been awarded the Ukrainian Medal of Arts, the Order of Princess Olga.
