ANDRÉI RUBLIOV: 1410 APROX.
Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow
The highest achievement in icon painting, The Trinity has a unique force. Rubliov deals with this topic following the Christian-Orthodox tradition: three angels symbolize the mystery of the unity between Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The artist resorts to antiperspective to avoid any theatralizations. As a consequence, the spectator is drawn towards the circular movement of the city, and when the contemplation is quiet, it surrenders to being swallowed by the spiritual whirlwind he is challenged with.
