TOROS ROSLIN

The mature renaissance still had to come. The civilized world had to come down before the geniuses Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael and astonish how that grand art burst in Italy.

And almost nobody would know anything about the resistance wtich was born many years before on the shores of Van in the Monastery of Narek, and that in the mountains of Kilikia a painter by the name of Toros Roslin put such grandeur in his portraits, that they received a rank of creature of God.

They will not know that Toros is the successor of the traditions of Armenian miniature school still started centuries before.

Many painters worked on our holy parchments.

Today we know only few names among them the most perfect-Toros Roslin.

God is clement too.

Due to Him, Toros Roslin was brought to us and the world.
