The heritage of Andrei Rublev, great artist of the Russian Orthodox Church passed on to Dionisij in the latter part of the fifteenth century. It was Dionisij who perfected the highly coloured style of the Moscow School of iconography. Both artists shared a common culture and spirituality, as well as a similar understanding of divine beauty and truth as the greatest harmony of all, a light welling up from the ground of all being and illuminating the whole of creation. The whole world rejoices, all its creatures celebrate, for even now there is a promise of paradise visible in our present reality.
This is seen in the icons and frescoes painted by Dionisij and his circle of artists. Firstly there are the works of art in the major museums of Moscow and St. Petersburg. Secondly there are the frescoes in the wonderful monastery at Ferapontovo in Northern Russia. There Dionisij painted the frescoes in the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Mother of God. These are an extraordinary series of paintings which depict the earthly life of Christ and the Virgin Mary. They express in pictures the same ideas as the oldest and most poetic hymns of the Eastern Church.( from the introduction)
