Some Iconographical Aspects of the Late Medieval Armenian Art on the Examples of the Altar Curtains from the Museum of the Armenian Church in Bucharest (2014-2015)

Field of study: Art History

In the 17-18th centuries radical changes occurred in different fields of art connected with new cultural preferences and tastes of the time, new understandings and the growing influence of the European culture, especially of the printed book and its dissemination. European printed books decorated with etchings, engravings and woodcuts were to have an important impact on Armenian art
providing inspiration for the masters in different fields of art. In this paper the main iconographic features as well as the iconographic transformations and innovations typical for the time are presented on the examples of the collection of altar curtains
kept in the Armenian museum in Bucharest.
