Moscow, Pushkin Museum of Art: Byzantine and Russian icons, including the fine Morozov Gospel (14th century), Byzantine, Russian Textiles.
Russia, Troitse-Sergieva-Lavra, the most famous of the Russian monasteries, founded by St Sergius of Radonezh. Cathedral of the Holy Trinity (Troitse) was built by St Nikhon, successor of St Sergius, about 1422. Monumental iconostasis (42 icons), by Andrey Rublev, Daniil Chorny and their pupils. The finest and most famous icon is that of the Trinity, now in the Tretiakov Gallery Lavra Museum: icons and textiles.
Russia, NOVGOROD: Antoniev Monastery: frescoes (1125); St Sophia Cathedral, built between 1045 and 1052, containing a few remnants of 12th century frescoes,;
Skovorodsky monastery: church of the Archangel Michael (14th century fresco); St Theodore Stratelates Church: frescoes (1380); Church of Transfiguration: frescoes by Theophanes the Greek (1378) are among the most original creation of Byzantine painting. The full length of patriarchs and other biblical figures, the Pantocrator treated as a mask, the Visitation of Abraham, the figures of Apostles and stylite saints are rendered in a manner at once expressionist and impressionist, which recalls the boldest venture of the Byzantine miniaturists of the 13th to 14th centuries,
In the vicinity of Novgorod, Volotovo: Church of the Dormition, frescoes (1378) which surpass in boldness the ventures of Theophanes the Greek; Volotovo Museum: rich collection of icons from Novgorod and the Northern School.
Russia, PSKOV. The school of Pskov (14th-15th century), affiliated to that of Novgorod, nevertheless presents features of its own. If the paintings of the Mirozhsky Monastery (1156) are still faithful to Byzantium, the frescoes of the Snetogorsky monastery, close to Pskov, which were executed in about 1313, and the icons of Pskov, are characterized by markedly popular traits and by their acid coloring, in which an intense green and orange-red predominate.
Russia, VLADIMIR. The city of Vladimir was the capital of Suzdal, a principality which reached its apogee under Prince Vsevolod (1176-1212). The church of St Dimitri (1195) is ornamented with admirable Byzantine frescoes of the 12th century. The Cathedral of the Dormition (1158) is ornamented with frescoes by Andrey Rublev and Daniil Chyorny (1408), including The Last Judgment.,_Vladimir
Russia, SUZDAL, Vladimir-Suzdal, was at its height during the second half of the 13th century and the first third of the thirteenth century, and is characterized by great fidelity to the Byzantine spirit. In the twelfth century, Kiev ceased to be an important artistic centre, ravaged as it was by disputes between the princes and the invasions of nomadic Turks and Mongols; the centre of Russian life was displaced towards the north, to Novgorod, its satellite town Pskov and the towns of Suzdal´ (Vladimir, Suzdal´, Yaroslav, etc.) sheltered from the nomads by their impenetrable forests. At Novgorod and in Suzdal´ one can already see the originality of the Russian art unfolding, manifest in the bulbous shape given to cupolas and above all in the marvellous sculpture-embroideries of the Suzdal´churches. While sculpture presents an original synthesis of Armenian, Romanesque and Scandinavian elements, the painting remains entirely Byzantine. Unfortunately the frescoes of Nereditsi (1199) were totally destroyed during the last war, The Mirozhsky monastery at Pskov preserves a cycle of frescoes dating from 1156. Like those of the church at Arkazhi (1189), they offer us a provincial, if not rustic, version of the Byzantine painting of the twelfth century. The frescoes of the Cathedral of Vladimir (1189) are vastly superior in style,,_Vladimir
Russia, TVER, Town on Vologda, in the 14th and 15th centuries the center of a school of icon painters. To this forgotten school is ascribed the fine Blue Dormition (15th century) in the Tretiakov Gallery, Moscow.
Russia, YAROSLAV. Town of the Suzdal´, north of Moscow. In the 13th century Yaroslavl possessed a noteworthy school of icon painters. To this school, which followed Byzantine models very closely, should be attributed the splendid Virgin Orants and Virgins, now in Tretiakov Gallery, Moscow. Yaroslav again became a very active artistic centre in the 17th century (frescoes to the Churches of Prophet Elijah, 1650); St John Chrysostom; St John the Baptist).
Russia, Ferapontov monastery, decorated with frescoes about the year 1500 by master Dionysius (Dionisiy) and his son.
