Abstract

The work is devoted to the artistic interpretation of the image of St. George in the art of the first quarter of the twentieth century. The article presents the trends of interpretation of traditional motifs of Russian iconography, depicting St. George Feast as a defender, warrior, victorious. The authors also consider the poets of the first quarter of the twentieth century, who actively turned to the image of St. George in the tragic times of the revolution, when only the spiritual power of true art allows a person to confront the circumstances of the revolution and civil war. In the article the methods of lexical and syntactic analysis were used. The authors have analyzed the mythopoetics of St. George image as a national component, defined its role in the semantic and aesthetic expression of the epic content in the works of avant-garde artists and poets of the 1910s-1930s.
