The Treasures of Mount Athos: Illuminated Manuscripts, Miniatures, Headpieces, Initial Letters. Volume I. The Protaton and the Monasteries of Dionysiou, Koutloumousiou, Xeropotamou and Gregoriou
Publisher: Ekdotike Antenon S.A., 1974 Athens, Greece.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover Folio - over 12 - 15" tall "Ekdotike Athenon S.A. is proud to publish this corpus of coloured miniatures from Byzantine manuscripts in the monastic libraries of Mount Athos. It is the first time that this collection, fruit of painstaking preparation on the part of the Patriarchal Institute for Patristic Studies, has been made known on an international level. These unrivalled examples of Byzantine art have until now been largely inaccessible. Their publication therefore satisfies one of the most pressing demands of Byzantine scholars: it removes the technical obstacles confronting them in their work. Byzantinologists will have the lavish, varied and high-quality store of Athonite miniatures at their disposal for research and comparative study for the first time. This rich and vivid material gives an extremely close and authentic picture of the Byzantine world. Religious scenes are enriched by details (of architecture, costume etc.) taken from contemporary life and from the artists' surroundings. At the same time, scenes from everyday life in town, countryside and at sea are often illustrated, as well as incidents of war. In addition the decoration embellishing the manuscripts is of considerable thematic complexity. Finally, the high artistic quality of the miniatures, their sensitive design and their astonishing combinations of colour, provide an aesthetic experience of a rare kind. For those who explore the traditions of Greek culture for elements with which to enrich their own work, the systematic publication of these miniatures and the faithful reproduction of their colours will prove to be a new source of inspiration. Architects, painters, designers of costume and other artists will find fresh answers to their various problems and fresh possibilities of creation through a careful study of the labour of these patient Byzantine miniaturists. Indeed, all lovers of art will find here a compendium of education and culture, a revelation of a new world: the world of Byzantine art.." 496 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD to NEAR FINE condition. Dust jacket has very minor edgewear; thus, VERY GOOD or better condition. Slipcase has some wear to edges; GOOD or better condition. Oversized hardcover.
