About the book

Ukrainian Icons, 13th—18th Centuries is the second book in a series on Ukrainian antiques held in private collections. “For the first time, 250 works of both highly professional and folk art from the 13th to early-18th centuries are being introduced into both scholarly circulation and the cultural context. With this, it turns an important and worthy page in the study of ancient Ukrainian icon painting, which holds a deserved place in the history of world cultures, having enriched it with its original contribution” (Viktor Yushchenko, foreword). “The publication of this album is an important event for the study of Ukrainian culture and spirituality. Now scholars from around the world will have direct access to these ‘texts’ and will be able to help us better and more profoundly understand the unique qualities of Ukrainian cultural creation” (Fr. Myroslav Tataryn, PhD, introduction). “The pages of this album have become a place for the rendezvous of countless Ukrainian icons from various time periods­—significant cultural relics, which have remained unknown to wide circles of interested folks since they are held in private collections all over Ukraine: Lviv, Lutsk, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kyiv, Poltava, Cherkasy. The cumulative picture they form allows us to come to a fuller understanding of important episodes in the history of nearly 500 years of ancient Ukrainian painting: from the 13th to the turn of the 19th century” (Oleh Sydor, introductory article).
