Over the centuries Russian artists perfected the use of visual language to tell stories and teach tradition through pictures. Russian Iconographers, creators of Orthodox religious art, would use form and color to depict complex beliefs and messages. These same techniques were later used by secular artists to depict history, fairy tales, folklore, and scenes of daily life. This program will explore Russian visual storytelling using icons and folk art from the collection.
Presented by Laura Garrity-Arquitt, Registrar at the Museum of Russian Icons.
Part of this year’s Haverhill Reads programming.
