André Grabar

André Grabar (1896–1990), born in Russia, was one of the most important art historians of the twentieth century. Focusing most of his life-work on the artistic manifestations of the Byzantine sphere, he also wrote major contributions on Western medieval art. Within his vast bibliography, two of his most famous monographs surely remain L’iconoclasme byzantin (1957) and his Christian Iconography, A Study of Its Origins (1968).
