Painting the Soul: Byzantium to El Greco

Professor Robin Cormack, The Getty Research Institute and Courtauld Institute of Art The development of icons from late antiquity to the period of El Greco. Icons flourished in Constantinople as both aesthetic and functional objects serving the whole range of Byzantine society. As Christian art changed in response to other religions and shifts of power in Europe and the Middle East, the forms and function of icons changed too, and developed in differing ways in different countries. Professor Cormack explored some of these changes and the meanings behind particular images.
