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 monastic name of the icon painter. The name given to him at birth is unknown.

It was not until many years after the death of the artist that Igor Grabar, a Russian-Soviet painter, discovered various icons near the city of Zvenigorod. As it turned out, these were Rublev's icons, housed in a common barn. Today, these masterpieces are indispensable in the famous Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. They delight visitors with their special lightness and the expressive expression of the saints. Rublev lived during the Moscow Principality, which went through a crisis in the second half of the 14th century. While Byzantine art had turned to cataclysm, the icon painter shed new light on painting of this era. His works are characterized by a bright coloring and smooth contours. He conveys in his artworks extraordinary, spiritual purity and deep faith. A perfectly selected color palette reinforces this feeling and gives the Russian Orthodox iconography a new harmony. The inner charisma and the special character of his creations influenced his knowledge in the field of ancient symbols and images.

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