Painting of temples and restoration of paintings and frescoes Automatic translate
A beautifully painted temple is not just a place for worship - it is a place where you can truly relax your soul and enjoy the work of artists. The solemnity and beauty of such a temple is a guarantee that parishioners will forget about their worldly affairs and become closer to God. Therefore, the temple should be signed not by the forces of the parishioners, but by professional artists.
The painting of the temple is one of the oldest forms of art, and it can be very diverse. Temples are decorated with frescoes in the old Russian style, as well as academic painting.
Old Russian style appeared in Russia in the X-XII centuries. And even now, in the most ancient Russian churches you can see frescoes made in this style. The Old Russian style retained the features of the classic Byzantine, but in many ways is unique. From the classical, he adopted the main features - the nobility, harmony and clarity of the composition, but later on he acquired his own - simplicity, picturesqueness and poetry, and also got rid of the typical Byzantine painting of severity and even some gloom. The most striking example of the old Russian style are the frescoes of Theophanes the Greek, and to this day preserved in some ancient churches and temples.
Subsequently, church painting experienced a period of rebirth. The style has become more magnificent, elegant and large-scale, as well as oriented to the aristocracy, and not to ordinary people. From this, the murals and paintings became really huge and detailed (sometimes overly). Light and gentle tones reigned in the painting, making the paintings refined and graceful, and at the same time joyful.
By the end of the 19th century, the classical direction of Russian religious painting was formed, which incorporated all the best features of all previous styles. From now on, churches are decorated with canvases of light and gentle tones, combining joy, tenderness and harmony, classic proportions, and understandable and pleasant both to a simple person and a representative of the intelligentsia. In addition, the paintings acquired the features of psychologism, but psychology is not oppressive, but elevating.
Artists of Kitezh creative workshops not only paint temples on their own - they undergo serious training, including the study of all styles of religious painting and work a lot with monuments of cultural heritage. Therefore, the restoration of painting by artists allows us to preserve all the features of the paintings in their original form, which means to bring the temple to the state it was many centuries ago. And the painting of the new church will make it more solemn, beautiful and enjoyable for parishioners.
