Event description

Description

This talk will be given by Andrew Spira. Although Russian icons are among the most beautiful works of art in the world, they are still little understood. This talk addresses the nature of icon painting, exploring how they emerged from the glory of the Byzantine world and became a distinctive expression of the Orthodox spirituality of Russia. The complex symbolic and sacramental meanings of icons are unravelled and their place in modern Russia is explored.

Coffee at 10am, lecture 10.30 - noon, followed by a complimentary glass of wine
