Recovering the Icon: The Life and Work of Leonid Ouspensky


 Product Description

Author: Patrick Doolan

Format: Hardcover

Pages: 104

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.
