Byzantine - Triptych Wing with an Angel and Saints - Walters 7167

description

Summary

This panel once formed together with its pair 71.159 the side wings of a triptych icon. Each wing is divided into four registers, showing inward-facing figures that originally drew the viewer's attention to the now missing image in the center. The overall arrangement follows a hierarchical order, with a pair of angels in the top register followed by the apostles Paul and Peter and by four martyrs holding crosses.

Byzantine architectural and visual style was a style that existed with remarkable homogeneity within the Eastern Roman empire between the 6th century and until the capture of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. The Byzantine style's presence extended to Greece. Through Venetians, who became Constantinople's archrivals, it spread to Italy, and Sicily, where it persisted almost intact through the 12th century and became a foundation for the Italian Renaissance. Preserved by the Eastern Orthodox church, the Byzantine style spread to eastern Europe, the Balkans, and particularly to Russia, where it remained, with little or no local modification, through the 17th century. Byzantine architecture and painting remained uniform in tradition rather than changed with time and personal expression. The result is a sophistication of style and spiritual expression not paralleled in Western art. As with all large Picryl collections, this one is made with the assistance of AI image recognition. It allows collections of sizes never seen before. We do our best to clean after AI as it is based solely on visual resemblance and we apologize if we missed a few images in the collection that do not belong to the Byzantine style.
