Andrei Rublev (around 1360 - 1428), whose identity is still a mystery today, was a Russian icon-painter and saint of the Orthodox faith. Biographical information about Rublev is extremely scarce. Researchers assume that Andrei was the icon painter's monastic name. The name given to him at birth is unknown.

Only many years after the artist's death did Igor Grabar, a Russian-Soviet painter, discover various icons near the city of Zvenigorod. As it turned out, these were the icons of Rublev, which were housed in an ordinary barn. Today it is impossible to imagine the famous Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow without these masterpieces. They fascinate visitors with their special lightness and the expressive facial expression of the saints. Rublev lived during the Moscow Principality, which went through a period of crisis in the second half of the 14th century. While Byzantine art had turned to cataclysm, the icon painter brought a new light to the painting of this period. His works are characterized by a bright coloration and smooth contours. In his works of art he conveys extraordinary spiritual purity and deep faith. A perfectly selected colour palette reinforces this feeling and gives a new harmony to Russian Orthodox iconography. The inner radiance and special character of his creations influenced his knowledge in the field of ancient symbols and images.

Throughout his life, the face of Andrei Rublev was never captured anywhere. Theorists claim that among his icons in the Cathedral of the Annunciation is a self-portrait of Judas Iscariot. Despite its initial unfamiliarity, the name Rublev became big in art history. His spiritual symbolism and mastery of color inspired Wassily Kandinsky, whose interest in iconography is present in later works. © Meisterdrucke
