The earliest surviving record of Andrei Rublev can be found in the Trinity Chronicle, according to which, he painted the murals of the Annunciation Cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin (1405), along with Theophanes the Greek and Prokhor from Gorodets. Experts also attribute Rublev to the miniatures of the Khitrovo Gospels, frescoes of the Assumption Cathedral "on Gorodok" in Zvenigorod (ca. 1400) and the icons of the so-called Zvenigorod tier (early 1400s), i.e. the a "Saviour", "Archangel Michael" and the "Apostle Paul".
Undisputed works by this great master include the murals of the Assumption Cathedral in Vladimir, created jointly with Daniil Cherny in 1408 and "The Trinity" (1425-1427), patronal icon of the Cathedral of the Trinity-St Sergy’s Monastery, painted at the request of St Nikon of Radonezh.
During the last years of his life Andrei Rublev was a monk of the Saviour-St Andronik’s Monastery in Moscow, where he painted the murals of the Saviour’s Cathedral. He was buried in this Monastery and later canonised by the Russian Orthodox Church.
Andrei Rublev’s art was closely linked to the spiritual and moral ideals of his age. The consolidation of Russian statehood and national consciousness was greatly stimulated by the victory over the Tatars at Kulikovo in 1380. The calls for peace, unity and general conciliation, made by St Sergy of Radonezh and his followers, also exerted an influence on Rublev’s work. The distinctive features of his style are mild and smoothly rounded lines and compositions, bright colouring devoid of sharp contrasts as well as remarkable harmony and spirituality of images
