Дионисий и мастерская

Уверение Фомы


Год создания: Около 1500

Размер: 85 x 54 x 3,7

Техника: Дерево, темпера, левкас


Сюжет иконы основан на евангельском тексте и входит в состав праздничного ряда иконостаса. На иконе из Павлово-Обнорского монастыря показан момент явления Христа его ученикам после воскресения. Фома, желая удостовериться в истинности воскресения Учителя, дотрагивается до его ран. В центре на возвышении на фоне здания стоит Христос, чуть склонив голову, указывая Фоме на свою рану. В жесте и позе Фомы – благоговение, и страх, и восхищение. Его рука потянулась за рукой Христа, а силуэт спины как бы продолжает линию, начало которой – абрис согнутой руки Христа. Фома – под Его милостивым и понимающим взглядом. Поза Фомы – признание – "Ты еси Господь и Бог мой".

Dionysius and Workshop

The Incredulity of Thomas


Creation: Circa 1500

Size: 85 x 54 x 3,7

Technique: Gesso on wood


Dionysius was one of the most famous Old Russian artists. His oeuvre reflected the spiritual and artistic searches of the fifteenth century and dictated the main trends in the Russian painting of the second half of the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries.
This particular work comes from the St Paul of Obnorsk Monastery, a religious retreat established in the north of Vologda Province not far from the St Ferapont Monastery. The subject of the icon is based on the Gospel story of Doubting Thomas and was included in the festival row of the iconostasis. The Russian Orthodox Church marks the Incredulity of Thomas in the second week of Easter, which is also known as the Week of Thomas. Throughout this week, the Resurrection of Christ is lauded in hymns confirming the verity of His divinity and humanity. The icon depicts Thomas reaching out to touch Christ’s wounds, in order to corroborate His Resurrection. Thomas’ gesture and pose reflect his reverence, fear and ecstasy. His hand reaches out to touch Christ’s hand and the silhouette of his back seems to continue the line of Christ’s bent arm. Thomas is thus simultaneously under Christ’s arm, under His merciful and understanding gaze and under His power. Thomas’s pose is his confession: “My Lord and my God!” (John 20: 28).
