An icon (from Greek εικόνα eikona) "image" is a representation of holy figures in the Orthodox Christian tradition. The icon has a profound theological meaning which differs from the pious image. The icon is completely integrated into the orthodox catechesis but also in the Eastern Catholic Churches which have preserved the tradition of the icon. Becoming objects of veneration of the faithful, the icons were submitted, from the eighth century, the Orthodox Church, to severe artistic constraints (inspiration stereotypical harsh line, color games). Until today, these guns are perpetuated, ensuring the continuity of this amazing painting dedicated to the glory of God
The use and making of icons are common in Kievan Rus' following its conversion to the Orthodox religion in 988. As a general rule, these icons closely follow the models and formulas of Byzantine art, developed from his capital of Constantinople. It is in this city and that Greece came first painters icônes1. Gradually, the Russians expanded the stylistic vocabulary and types of icons to achieve a successful art which is not found anywhere in the Orthodox world.
Traditions personal, innovative and creative religious art of Western Europe were largely absent in Russia before the seventeenth century, when Russian icon painting was strongly influenced by religious paintings and engravings of Europe Protestant and Catholic. The middle of the seventeenth century, the changes introduced in the liturgy and religious practices by Patriarch Nikon resulted in a schism in the Russian Orthodox Church, also known as the Raskol. Traditionalists, called the Old Believers or Old-Ritualists have retained the traditional style of icons, while the State Church modified its practice. It is from this time that the icons were painted not only in the traditional style non-realistic, but also in a style combining traditional Russian realism and Western Europe, near Catholic art. From the late seventeenth century Russian icons show more influence of Dutch painting and flamande2.
Russian icons are basically paintings on wood, often small, though some in churches and monasteries may be larger. Some Russian icons are made cuivre3. Many homes in Russia have icons hanging on mur4 in krasny ugol.
A rich history and elaborate religious symbolism developed around icons. In Russian churches, the nave is traditionally separated from the sanctuary by an iconostasis (Russian: иконостас, ikonostas), a partition multistage icons superimposed with two doors in the center.
Russians sometimes speak of an icon as having been "written" because in Russian (as in Greek) the same word (писать, pisat ') means the faith painting and writing. The icons are considered gospel painted.
Considered miraculous icons are said appeared. The appearance (явление, yavlenie) an icon is its supposed miraculous discovery. "A true icon is One That Appeared HAS, a gift from above, one opening the way to the Prototype and ble to perform miracles" 5.
