Holy Trinity, inspired by Andrei Rublev's famous icon, which shows the Trinity in the form of three angels -- the three angels are depicted in equal dignity, symbolizing the triunity and equality of all three Persons. Andrei Rublev,born in the 1360s, died 1427 or 29 January 1430) is considered to be the greatest medieval Russian painter of Orthodox icons and frescoes. There is little information about his life. It is not known where he was born. Andrei Rublev probably lived in the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra near Moscow Chronicles tell us that in 1408 he painted (together with Daniil Cherni) the Assumption Cathedral in Vladimir and in 14251427 the Cathedral of St. Trinity in the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra. He is also believed to have painted at least one of the miniatures in the Khitrovo Gospels. The only work authenticated as entirely his is the icon of the Trinity, ca. 1410, currently in the Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow. It is based upon an earlier icon known as the "Hospitality of Abraham" Rublev removed the figures of Abraham and Sarah from the scene, and through a subtle use of composition and symbolism changed the subject to focus on the Mystery of the Trinity. In Rublev's art two traditions are combined: the highest asceticism and the classic harmony of Byzantine mannerism. The characters of his paintings are always peaceful and calm. After some time his art came to be perceived as the ideal of Church painting and of Orthodox iconography.
