Russian painting has a long and glorious development. In the Middle ages began the tradition of icon painting imported from the Byzantine Empire; it lasted until the Modern age. A masterpiece of Russian iconography is the Virgin of Vladimir (12th century), conserved in Moscow since 1395 (it is not a Russian icon, but a gift brought from Constantinople to Russia); it is one of the most venerated Orthodox icons and a typical example of Byzantine iconography. Important developments in the Moscow school can be seen through the works of four masters of icon painting: Theophanes the Greek, Andrei Rublev, Dionisii (Dionysius), and Simon Ushakov. [1]

Andrei Rublev (1360s - 1427 or 1430), a medieval painter, is best known for his masterpiece the icon "The Old Testament Trinity". Religious painting predominated in Russia until the eighteenth century. Russian art in general, with the accession of Peter the Great, presented a major modernization. Catherine the Great (reigned 1762 - 1796), who was a Francophile art lover and avid collector, encouraged painting, and created the Hermitage Museum. Alexei Antropov (1716 - 1795) was one of the first Russian portraitists.
