9780881412703: Recovering the Icon: The Life and Works of Leonid Ouspensky

The author has selected, photographed, and commented on more than one hundred representative works of the gifted iconographer Leonid Ouspensky (1902 1987), who rediscovered the sources of Orthodox Christian iconography and painted icons of immense theological and spiritual import. The volume includes a powerful biography by the iconographer s spouse, Lydia Ouspensky, and a moving recollection of the master iconographer s approach to icon painting, by his student, the author Monk Patrick. Leonid Ouspensky (1902 1987) settled in France following the Russian Revolution and worked as a talented but struggling commercial painter prior to discovering the icon, which became his life s work. Orthodox iconography had been in full decline since the seventeenth century, and Ouspensky set out to rediscover the genuine sources of Eastern Christian art and to recover the tradition that had spawned them.
On a practical level, through detailed study of the most representative ancient icons, and on a theological level, through deep study of the dogmatic foundations of the icon, Ouspensky produced his monumental book, Theology of the Icon (Theologie de l icône). The book was later translated into English, Italian, Greek, Romanian, and Polish, and posthumously in Russian, and remains a major reference and influence in the field.
Ouspensky painted numerous icons himself, which are characterized by perfection of technique, purity of style, and depth of theological and spiritual expression. These icons are dispersed throughout various churches and private collections.
For more than forty years, Ouspensky taught iconography in Paris to pupils who came from the whole world. They consistently heard his humble admonition: The old icons are the best teachers. Some of these pupils subsequently founded schools in their countries of origin, and spread Ouspensky s influence abroad, including the author of this volume. An icon was not to [Ouspensky] an aesthetic creation, but a vision in lines and colors of the Divine World, and it pervaded, conquered, and transfigured the fallen world. Foreword by Metropolitan Anthony Bloom

Descripción St. Vladimirs Seminary Press March 2008, 2008. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. It's a tall, thin hardcover with a simple yet elegant cover and contents, and we could sum up the message concisely: iconography is a living act, a living Tradition passed through the vermilion hand and azure soul of the icon-writer. The whole Church, from its catacomb days in antiquity to its catacomb days in the modern era, has been thinking, praying and speaking in this language, this charismatic language of icons. Between the short, inspiring biography introducing the book and its elegant closing memoir, Recovering the Icon reproduces and explains 100 icons -- painted, carved or pressed in silver -- by the hand of a modern master. The focus is the master himself, Russian émigré in Paris, Leonid Ouspensky. We offer other books, such as Icons and Saints and Ouspensky's Theology of the Icon, which detail the history of icons and their place in the Christian Tradition. Here, the life and work of a single iconographer is presented to us by his wife Lydia, and by former student Patrick Doolan. The life verifies the work. 104 pp. oversize.
