Byzantion nea hellás

XAMIST, Federico José. Rhythm and space in byzantine painting. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2011, n.30, pp. 203-215. ISSN 0718-8471.

During the twentieth century is carried out a revaluation of the Hellenic medieval painting, ignored during the European classicism. Given the finding that the space represented in Byzantine painting does not reproduce the natural space leads to the conclusion that painting operations implemented by the Byzantine painters are intended to symbolize a supernatural space. The following lines try to open the question of space in painting plastic Byzantine interpretation, ie to try to present a reading of the painting operations as such, following the approach of Georges Kordis, chair professor of the Faculty Eikonografia Theology of the University of Athens and prominent Greek painter. Our goal is to propose some guidelines for introducing us to the problem of pictorial representation of space in the Byzantine painting.

Palabras clave : Medieval painting; byzantine painting; symbol supernatural space.
