BYZANTINE ART AND ITALIAN PANEL PAINTING: THE VIRGIN AND CHILD HODEGETRIA AND THE ART OF CHRYSOGRAPHY. Jaroslav Folda. Cambridge University Press, 2015. 504 pp. with 89 col. ills. 27 x 19 cm. LC 2014-46701 ISBN 9781107010239 In English.
Publisher's description: The Virgin and Child Hodegetria was a widely venerated Byzantine image depicting the Virgin holding and pointing to her son as the way to salvation. In this book, Jaroslav Folda traces the appropriation of this image by thirteenth-century Crusader and central Italian painters, where the Virgin Mary is transformed from the human mother of God, the Theotokos, of Byzantine icons, to the resplendent Madonna radiant in her heavenly home with Christ and the angels. This transformation, Folda demonstrates, was brought about by using chrysography, or golden highlighting, which came to be used on both Virgin and Child.
