  2. Art historian M. Gusev distinguishes several schools and trends in modern icon­painting: 1) School, concept of which can be defined as «icon­feast»; basic features characteristic for this school are high skills and aesthetic liberty. Icons of the artists closed to Ks. Pokrovskaya can be referred to this school. (Ks. Pokrovskaya lives in the USA now. She put into practice synthesis of modern Russian tradition of icon­painting in the arranged icon­painting studio. American School of the Orthodox icon makes its first steps in this studio. 2) School which concept is regarded as «icon­desert». It is characteristic for rigidity of the style, renunciation of emotional and material dominant for the sake of moral dominant which produces an image of inner reality contemplation. Icon­painter Al. Lavdanskij is an adherent of this concept. 3) School of «The concept of embodiment». Icon­painters working within this concept try to fix levels of embodi­ment, flesh transformation. Al. Sokolov and B. Bychevskij are followers of this concept // Church digest. Issue 1. – Moscow / 1991.– Pp. 16­18.
