The systemity of visual artworks can be described by the interrelation of several semiotic models as: (a) interrelations between verbal and nonverbal systemities; (b) interrelations of the three semiotic aspects, both internal ones and those with the three semiotic aspects of artwork verbal basis; (c) signs formed by codes, systems of linguistic type, text, and context; (d) sign form including denotations, connotations, and organizing structures, and finally, (e) sign system of individual elements and details. The Holy Trinity painted by Rublev illustrates developed interrelations of these models.
