A good review and articulation of some very important characteristics of icons.

The Fra Angelico Institute for Sacred Art

The article below is reblogged from the always informative Orthodox Arts Journal. The article is the 9th in a series about sacred iconography that was written by Brother Aidan Hart, a British iconographer. Brother Hart has written extensively on all aspects of sacred iconography and has recently published a very comprehensive book on the subject called Techniques of Icon and Wall Painting. The editor at the Orthodox Arts Journal highly recommends it. Brother Hart’s articles are available at his website and he also offers sacred iconography workshops in Britain. This nine part article is well worth the effort of perusing through all of it. His series contains many gems of information that will add to your knowledge of the sacred arts. Links to his site and the series are provided for you below.

    Thanks for sharing it. Am waiting to have a little more time to digest what was said. What I have read so far was so informative. Me knowing nothing about “icons.” What talented people you all are. God Bless, SR

      Yes, there is a lot of information in here, some of it quite technical. I read and re-read my icon books, to be able to absorb it all, or at least as much as my brain can hold on to.
