This work analyses the evolution of iconic art from its beginning in the Byzantine period, until the time of the Russian Empire. Written by one of the world’s leading authorities on early Christian iconography, this work is aimed at specialists and students.
Icons are a fundamental element in art history; it is therefore crucial to understand how this imagery started and how it evolved through the centuries. As there are very few books on the subject, Icons stands out and is bound to become a reference in the subject.
Nikodim Pavlovich Kondakov was an art historian who specialised in Russian culture and history. His extensive research on Russian Orthodox culture led him to become the eminent specialist of Christian iconography. A true man of science, he was often the first to interpret the origin of certain icons.
