Discussion and Characteristic
Andrei Rublev was an orthodox monk who took the vow of silence, poured his artistic passion and expression through painting. Most of his works are influenced by his religious belief characterized by peace and calmness, where it incorporated Byzantine art.

Naturalism and Idealism of ancient Greek in relation to Byzantine art
Idealism is the expression of art that depicts subjects in pursue of higher power and achievements. These artistic expressions of higher power and deity are manifested in sculpture form, which is of contrary to the medieval byzantine art works, but their relation lies beneath their artistic value. They express a God, gods, supernatural or believe. Naturalism is an artistic form of art that extract the physical characteristics in the form of shapes, color, form, light or shadow (Putnam 2016). It is concerned with artistic physical nature of a being/none beings, Andrei Rublev mosaic work illustrates the physical appearance of God from his face and light that resembles divinity. This is coherent with the ancient Greek artwork, which reflects emotions, lifestyle or the way of life (the Calf bearer).
Andrei Rublev and other ancient or medieval painters and sculptor, continue to impact an influence our contemporary society with their pieces, while inspiring the new generation of artist to carry on their work.
