Quote:
Kermira, Cappadocia St Christopher depicted with the head of a dog. From the 5th century on, it was widely believed in Byzantium that the saint was one of the mythic dog-heads, a barbarian race without the gift of human speech. Nevertheless his depiction as a dog-head had not been the dominant in the Byzantine art, since the Byzantine Church frowned upon the linking of one of its saints with the cynocephali. In the post-Byzantine art, though, especially from the 17th c. onwards, the Orthodox artists several times paint the Saint as a dog-head.

Painted in the 30's, but not sure of the exact year, it is after 1936 I suppose.

Stunning! It even gives me a Byzantine vibe (people inside on the left and right of the building behind Byzantine styled pillars).

Last Judgement

http://www.ebyzantinemuseum.gr/?i=bxm.en.exhibit&id=12
Collection: Paintings
Type: PAINTING
Origin: From Asia Minor (Constantinople?)
Creator: Workshops of Constantinople
Measurement: 224 x 316 cm
Exhibit Number: ΒΧΜ 22634 Appears in: IV.3a. The Communities of the Romioi (RUM)


Quote:
Painting with the Last Judgment, September 15, 1855. The huge painting with the multi-scene depiction is coming from Asia Minor. It bears inscriptions in Karamanli from which we learn that it was created by two painters that worked in Constantinople, near the Gate of Adrianople and that it was dedicated to a Hagios Nikolaos Monastery.



The Ascension of the Prophet Elijah and scenes from his life


http://www.ebyzantinemuseum.gr/?i=bxm.en.exhibit&id=68

Collection: Icons and Wood-Carvings
Type: PORTABLE ICON
Origin: Ano Korakiana, Kerkyra (Corfu)
Creator: Theodoros Poulakis
Measurement: 188,5 x 123,5 cm
Exhibit Number: ΒΧΜ 01576 Appears in: IV.1b. Painting in Ionian Islands: a justifiable hybrid


Quote:
The icon is signed by Theorodos Poulakis (circa 1620-1692), one of the most important and the most productive painters of the era. Theodore Poulakis was born in Chania, Crete, c. 1620. He lived for some years in Venice and also in Kerkyra (Corfu) and in other Ionian Islands. He often used Flemish engravings as models for his works, as is the case here. The icon, that comes from the Church of Prophetes Ilias (Prophet Elijah) in Ano Korakiana was stolen in 1976. It was cut in nine pieces to be transported easily and sold by looters, who were arrested a few years later. The work, which suffered extensive damage, was located and transported to the Byzantine Museum where it underwent conservation in 1984 and again in 2008-2009.

Wow, the painting by Theodoros Poulakis seems to follow Classical principles. Love the chariot horses.
