Beschreibung

In this novel account of the history of Russian icons, Oleg Tarasov looks in detail at a range of fascinating issues, from the sacred meanings of such images to practical questions of how and why they were made. The significance of icons in the cultural life of Russia is discussed in the context of popular prints and poster design. Wonder-working saints, the leaders of such religious schisms as the Old Believers, and holy icon painters all appear in these pages, which are illustrated with miniatures, lithographs and engravings that have never previously been published in the English-speaking world.

Portrait

Oleg Tarasov is Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Cultural History of the Institute of Slavic Studies (Russian Academy of Sciences), Moscow. He has written extensively on icons, painting and cultural history.

Pressestimmen

' ... richly illustrated, making available much popular iconographic material generally unfamiliar to Western readers ... a fascinating contribution to the cultural history of Russia.' - Times Literary Supplement 'Both the techniques and the meaning of the long history of icons are explored here; the core meaning residing, according to Mr Tarasov, in the icon's role as idealised image of Holy Russia. Much of the imagery has never been previously published in the English-speaking world. A treasure trove awaits.' - Art Newspaper ' ... invaluable ... this remarkable book should be required reading for anyone with a desire to understand imperial Russian culture at a more than superficial level.' - Slavonica 'Is it possible to explain a people on the basis of its religious art? Anyone who has explored the concept of "Holy Russia" or l'idee russe will find an answer to that question in Oleg Tarasov's study of icons and devotion in imperial Russia ... this book is immensely rewarding and will interest cultural, art, and political historians as well as the general reader.' - Renaissance Quarterly
