Title: In the pub
Artist: Tsvetkova E.
Size: 7x6x4
Price : $125 SOLD!


This traditional Fedoskino box was painted by Tsvetkova E. The composition shows several peasants sitting at the table in the pub. The man, sitting on the barrel, smokes a cigarette and listens to the music. His friend, sitting in front of him, plays balalaika and sings a song. The friends have just drained several glasses of vodka and they rest now before continuing their binge. On the table we can see a bottle of vodka, glasses and the snack: bread and onion. Next to these two friends sits a loving couple. A girl drinks tea and her suitor pays her compliments. The characters sit still as if they pose to a photographer or perform a play for the public.
Genre scenes, likes this one were very popular during the Vishnyakov and Lukutin era. The depiction of peasants, their daily life, feasts, and traditions was the most popular theme then.
The composition is painted in bright colors against the black background. The black background furthers the radiance of the presentation. The faces of the characters are painted distinctly, their peasant costumes are neatly detailed.
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 sides of the box are decorated with intricate gold designs. The box isn't hinged and rests on a flat bottom. It is signed with the artist's name, village and year (2000).
