Title: Patrons and Paintings on the Island of Kythera in the Early Palaeologan Period
Author(s): KNIPP, David
Volume: 83 Date: 2013
This paper investigates a number of rural chapels on the island of Kythera which may reasonably be placed within a largely unexplained period of transition between Palaeologan and Venetian rule (1261-1363). By placing the murals within a wider context of painting in the periphery of Byzantium as well as reinterpreting the Venetian sources, an attempt is being made to shed light on the local preconditions that led to an extraordinary abundance of newly erected and decorated chapels during the late thirteenth century.
