Title: A walk with a Fairy
Artist: Anokhin Pavel
Size: 14.5x10.5x5

Price: $3350 $2500

This unusual work was painted by the famous Fedoskino artist Pavel Anokhin.
It is painted in the style which is unusual for Fedoskino School of miniature painting. To a great extent it is close to the style of surrealism. In painting and sculpture surrealism is one of the leading influences of the 20th century. In this century it also admired, and included in its exhibitions, works by the Italian Giorgio de Chirico, the Russian Marc Chagall, the Swiss Paul Klee, the French artists Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia, and the Spaniard Pablo Picasso. Surrealist painting exhibits great variety of content and technique. That of Salvador Dali, for example, consists of more or less a direct and photographic transcription of dreams.
The box shows a romantic pair of young handsome man and his muse is so breathtaking...wonderful...warm...Shades on the faces are so smooth. Details of the painting are just amazing...
The composition is painted in gray and blue tones. A thick gold line is framed the composition.
The sides of the box are decorated complex ornament. He called it wall-papers. He made the painting on the sides and after that he made scratching lines from the top to the bottom. Unique technique!!!
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. White cream lacquer covers the exterior and light gray lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge to the top of the compposition and rests on four legs finished with gold nails. It is titled and signed with the artist name.
Just a great box!
