Paper Icons - Orthodox Prints, A Nineteenth-Century Icon-Paintersí Collection of Greek Religious Engravings and their Role to Painters A lecture in English by Dr Claire Brisby, Courtauld Institute of Art. The lecture shows how an unknown collection of prints in a Balkan icon-painters' archive illuminates our understanding of Greek religious engravings and paintersí use of them in their work. It discusses how their imagery explains the reasons for their production and reflects the impact of their publication in the central European centres of Vienna and Venice on theirassimilation of western imagery. Particular focus is given to the fragmentary evidence of prints of two Orthodox engravings which sheds light on paintersí use of prints as sources of innovative iconography, which then leads to conclude that the role of visual prototypes should be recognised as integral part of their intended function. Free entry but please confirm attendance on 020 7563 9835 or at press@helleniccentre.org
