Theophanes The Greek

Theophanes The Greek

▪ Byzantine painter
born c. 1330, /40
died 1405

      one of the leading late Byzantine painters of murals, icons, and miniatures who influenced the 15th-century painting style of the Novgorod school (q.v.) and the Moscow school (q.v.). His early career was spent in Constantinople and the Crimea, but after c. 1370 he worked in Russia. Although he painted hundreds of works, the only ones that can be certainly attributed to him are frescoes in the Church of the Transfiguration in Novgorod (1378).
