Title: Portrait of Alexey Tolstoy
Artist: Ponamareova Irina
Size: 12x16x5
Size (inches): 4.75x6.25x2
Price: $580 $375

This portrait of poet and writer Alexey Tolstoy was painted by a talented Fedoskino artist Irina Ponomareova. Originally this portrait was painted by a famous Russian artist Karl Pavlovich Bruyllov (1799-1852) in 1836.
The painting is very nicely done. An incredible realism has been achieved through choice of colors, attention to perspective, and meticulous working of the details of texture.
The background shows a landscape painted in soft green-brown tones. This helps to focus the attention on the major figure of this painting - young hunter.
The hunter wears long green velvety coat. The white sleeves coming out from a coat are masterfully painted, with shading and design to show three-dimensionality.
Two parallel gold lines wrap around the box's sides and between the lines the box is decorated with a mixture of wavy yellow color imitated a marble stone.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The lid is hinged from the left of the portrait, and the box rests flat. The work is signed with the artist's name, dated and Fedoskino.
