About this Item

ALEXANDROS PRESS IOANNIS SPATHARAKIS BYZANTINE WALL PAINTINGS OF CRETE VOL. II: MYLOPOTAMOS PROVINCE This book contains 450 illustrations in full colour and 64 in black and white, most of which are published here for the first time. They mainly come from c. 30 churches from Mylopotamos province, examined in this publication. After a short description of the architecture, the author investigates the iconographic programme, iconography, style and date of every church. A ground plan with the layout of the paintings recorded on it and a list of subjects decorating each church are included. A large chapter of conclusions summarises the iconographic programme and the iconography of the various scenes and saints of the entire province. Special attention is always paid to the particularities appearing in every part of this study. The wall paintings of the Mylopotamos province greatly contribute to our knowledge of Byzantine art, not only with rare and singular subjects but also with the artistic quality of the paintings, which occasionally can be compared to that seen in Constantinople and other great artistic centres of Byzantium. The author is already known from his Portrait in Byzantine Illuminated Manuscripts and several other publications on Byzantine art, among which Cretan wall paintings.
