Representation of the Sunday of all Saints in the Romanian Icons on Wood, Book Xylographs and Icons on Glass (16th-19th Centuries)
The theme The Sunday of all Saints was seldom approached in the Romanian painting of icons, either on wood or on glass. On the other hand, this topic frequently appeared in the graphics of religious books, from Wallachia (Bucharest, Buzău, Râmnic), Moldavia (Iassy) and Transylvania (Blaj, Sibiu), in the form of xylographs, which more or less would influence the way of accomplishing the wood painting and particularly the glass painting. The xylograph in Petru Movilă’s Kazanija (Homiletics), printed at Kiev in 1637, seems to have been the prototype for all the above mentioned works. This study is meant to examine the representations of the illustration entitled the Sunday of all Saints executed in the above mentioned techniques as well as the connections between them.
