Their work displayed a brilliant combination of bold colors and an expressive and complex design which reflected a life of prayer and devotion. In honor of the millennium of this iconographic tradition, Father Ivanov and the Patriarchate of Moscow have produced this glorious history of sacred Russian painting. 160 images are reproduced in their splendid golds, blues, and brilliant reds100 of which have never before been published.
Ivanov traces the subtle stylistic evolution of the icon from its medieval origins through the innovations of Peter the Great to developments of the last three centuries, the latter, a period until now left largely untouched by scholars. With a preface by Metropolitan Pitirim and a text by Russian priest Vladimir Ivanov, Russian Icons is the first book to review the iconographic tradition from the perspective of the Russian Orthodox Church, and is thus a unique and invaluable contribution to the history of art.
