The Russian Art.
The most important form of early Russian art was the icons.  The  word  icon
means image in Greek. Icon is the religious pictures of  Christ  and  Saints
on wooden panel. They decorated churches, mostly placed on the  iconostasis.
In Russia the finest icons were produced from the midforteenth  century.  In
that time a specific national style icon painting was formed.  Russian  icon
painting reached the highest point  of  its  achievement  in  the  works  of
Theothan Greek, Andrey Rublev and Dionissy in  the  mid-15  century.  Andrey
Rublev is a Russian greatest iconpainter. In 1408  he  was  engaged  on  the
murals in the Cathedral of the Assumption at Vladimir when he also  produced
his version of the icon of Vladimirs Virgin. And well known  cuch  icons  as
Спас and Троица which was found in Vladimir.  A.R.s  icons  is  expressed  a
distinct filling of harmony, deep spirituality, grace and the beauty of  the
colors. Rs works is one  of  the  greatest  creations  of  medieval  Russian
painting.   Intimate [intimeit] намекать,  Severe[sivie]  строгий,  Distinct
[distinkt] отличный, тчетливый.  Creations  [krieishn]  создание,  творение.
In the2th half of 19th  century  artists  of  the  Wanderers  group  started
painting scenes of contemporary life. Vasiliy Perov, Ivan Kramskoy,  Aleksey
Savrasov,Ivan Shishkin, Valentin Serov and Vasiliy Surikov  were  wanderers.
The works of Wonderes are displayed in the  famous  picture  galleries:  the
Tretiakov Gallery in Moscow,the  Russian  Museum  in  St.  Petersburg.  They
called themselves the  Wanderers,  because  they  wanted  to  realize  their
ideals by taking wondering exibitions  tthroughout  the  country.  The  most
clear represenative of Wonderers in my opinion  was  Vasiliy  Surikov.[1848-
1916]. He was the first of the W. Hewas born in Krasnojarsk  in  Siberia.His
masterpiece  was the Боярыня Морозова. [1887] Its an enormous  painting-both
in size and scale. A decorative surface rhythm and  strong  horizontals  are
other eharacteirctics common to Russian art, both ancient  and  modern,  and
like wise first recovered in the work of Surikov.

The English Art.
The 18th century , the Golden Age of British Art. The 18th   century  ,  the
great age of British painting. It  was  in  this  period  that  British  art
attained a distinct national character. Hogarth was followed  by  a  row  of
illustrious painters: Thomas  Gainsborough,  with  his  lyrical  landscapes,
funcy  pictures  and  portraits,  Reynolds,  who  painted  charming  society
portraits  and  became  the  first   president   of   the   Royal   Academy.
William Hogarth was unquestionably one of the greatest  of  English  artists
and a man of  remarkably individual character  and  thought  .  It  was  his
achievement  to  give  a  comprehensive  view  of  social  life  within  the
framework of moralistic and framatic narrative.
His masterpiece of the famous series was Marriage a la Mode .  This  set  of
pictures describes a marriage between the daughter  of  a  rich  man  and  a
young lord, the son of an old earl. The Girls father has brought a bag  full
of money with him. Their children are together but apart: the young  man  is
watching himself in the glass; the girl is listening to a young  Counsellor.
The pictures round the room help understund the situation.  In  one  of  the
pictures Madam sits listening to the young Consellor, whose  portrait  hangs
in her room. Other pictures in the series show My Lord  who  amuses  himself
with a bad company. He  returns  home  tipsy.  Madam  wastes  her  money  at
auctions. The end is known. My Lord attacks the Counsellor,  who  kills  him
and is executed. Moral: do not listen to counsellors; dont marry a  man  for
his rank, or a woman for her money; dont  visit  auctions  unknown  to  your
husband; dont have bad friends. Otherwise you will be ruined.
From the 18 century portrait painting,eit
