RECOVERING THE ICON: THE LIFE AND WORK OF LEONID OUSPENSKY
Leonid Ouspensky(1902-1987) was perhaps the most gifted Orthodox iconographer of the twentieth century. Turning his back on his communist youth he painted icons of great beauty and which conveyed profound spiritual truth. With numerous colour plates this work surveys more than one hundred icons and woodcarvings, exploring the faith revealed through them. With a foreword by Metropolitan Anthony (Bloom) and a moving biography by the iconographers spouse, Lydia Ouspensky.
