Book Description

Doula Mouriki’s death in 1991 was a great loss to Greek scholarship. In a career of just under thirty years she made a major contribution to the study of Byzantine art in Greece.

This volume brings together eight of the most influential of Professor Mouriki’s papers on late Byzantine painting. These are principally concerned with Palaeologan monumental painting in Greece, and include two papers on Georgian fresco cycles, and an important study of the thirteenth-century icons of Cyprus. Dr. Melita Emmanuel has contributed a preface and supplementary notes.
