Item description for The Power of Icons: Russian and Greek Icons 15th-19th Century by Karin Braamhorst, Eva Haustein-Bartsch, Phaidra Kalafatis, S.G. Morsink & Edmond Voordeckers...

Simon Morsink is a leading dealer in ancient Russian and Greek icons, well known to private collectors and museum curators worldwide. Together with his brother Hugo he runs the internationally renowned Jan Morsink Ikonen, specializing in icons created between the fifteenth and the nineteenth centuries. The lavishly illustrated The Power of Icons presents some 50 important Greek and Russian pieces from the Morsink collection, many of which have not been documented for the public before. Introductory essays including 2000 Years of Icon Painting describe the history and explore the meaning of icons, and discuss painting and restoration techniques--readers will be surprised by the original colors of pieces once so dirty as to be called black panels. Contributors include Dr. Eva Haustein-Bartsch, director of the Ikonen Museum Recklinghausen, in Germany and Dr. Phaidra Kalafatis, curator of the Byzantine Museum Athens, Greece.

A picture is worth a thousand words  May 12, 2007
Lovely book. Lavish with illustrations. Perfect for what I wanted.
 
Must Hve  Dec 1, 2006
This is one of the best books on the subject to have been published in recent years. It is very informative and well written - there are one or two minor spelling mistakes, but that does not affect the overall quality. So many books are repetetive and pedestrian that it is refreshing to find one which covers so much including the history of the thought behind the Icon as well as technical details. If anyone only wants two or three books on the Icon this should be one of them.
