06.10.2020 Lecture: Medieval iconography from the XIV-middle of the XVII century
Join the NAMU lectures this Saturday!
This week we continue to talk about medieval art, namely ancient from the 14th to the mid 17th century.
Ukrainian medieval icon painting is undoubtedly a special phenomenon in world art. Despite the established rules of depicting saints, local painters allowed themselves to freely interpret the Byzantine canon, adding a personal vision of a particular iconographic plot.
The first icons signed by masters in their own name began to appear in the 16th century. Such icons had their own unique style and characteristic interpretation of the artistic image. In the lecture we compare what is common in such author's icons and how they differ. We will pay special attention to the characteristic feature inherent in Ukrainian icons - decorativeness and decoration with ornaments. Let's consider when the engraved and embossed decor appeared on the frame and halos, and later on the background of the monuments.
Lecturer: Kateryna Gavrilenko, Senior Research Fellow, Department of Ancient Art, NAMU.
