The Meaning of Icons

Ouspensky, Leonid and Vladimir Lossky

Boston, Massachusetts: Boston Book & Art Shop, Inc, 1969. Hardcover. G (Book is generally clean, with page edges perhaps tanning only slightly; dj has tanning and aging along all edges; slipcase has borne the brunt of time and circumstances and is heavily aged along edges but has protected the book nicely.). Coral cloth, gilt letters on spine, off-white and color illus. dust jacket, 222 pp., 50 BW illus., 12 color plates, 2 fold-outs; kept in original cardboard slipcase. "The art of icons is a sacred art in the true sense of the word. It is nourished wholly on the spiritual truth to which it gives pictorial expression. For this reason it is often inadequately and faultily judged, when approached from outside with criteria borrowed from profane and purely human art. ... A sacred art has, through its very content, access to a living and truly inexhaustible source. Hence, it is in its nature to remain true to itself, even where a particular artist has not fully realised the spiritual depth of a given subject, and so does not draw direct from the spring of holiness, but only reflects more or less of that light which is comprehended in sacred forms sanctioned through traditional rules." (foreword).
