HISTORY OF ICON PAINTING, A:
The second printing of a major new work first published in April 2005. It has rapidly become one of the most popular overviews of Orthodox iconography and was one of the first published in English by Russian scholars in the post Communist era. Innovative by virtue of its completeness and encyclopaedic coverage, this fundamental work covers the history of icon painting from the beginning of Christianity until the present. Sumptuously illustrated with 500+ full colour illustrations, it offers an integral picture of the artistic, cultural, aesthetic and spiritual values which icons have reflected for many nations in different periods of history. Retaining its original price, it makes a handsome gift, as well as reading for ones own edification.
