abstract

This paper reports the recent discovery of the autograph of Giorgio da Mistra, an apprentice of the famous Greek icon painter Theodoro Poulakis, on an icon of Saint Demetrius. In order to check its authenticity and give a plausible dating, the Author compares the biography, pictorial technique and aesthetic orientation of both post-Byzantine painters. She further introduces little-known notices about the Russian acquisitions during the 19th century on the Italian antiquarian market that could have intercepted other Da Mistra’s works and, in general, are of potential interest for the study of the post-Byzantine painting.
