Title: The ship straggling through the storm
Artist: Lappo Larisa
Size: 7.5x7.5x4
Size (inches): 3x3x1.5
Price : $199 SOLD!


This lovely scene, showing the ship striving through the surge, was painted by the talented Fedoskino artist L. Lappo. This scene resembles the famous picture "The Sea. The Bay of Koktebl" painted by Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky in 1853. The huge waves strike desperately against the rocky coast. At any moment the ship that have been washed ashore may break against rocks.
Refined oil-painting techniques give this piece depth and life. The palette used is full of blue paints to convey the marine and aquatic environment within the composition. Yellow-pinkish tones are used to paint the sunset that beautifully enlivens the composition. Great movement in the water is painted very naturally showing the seemingly random wave directions and the whitewater being blown off the crests of the waves. The detail in the crashing waves is incredible--the color is excellent, and the light from the sun can be seen through the huge wave in the middle of the scene.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The sides of the box are adorned with beautiful gold floral patterns. The Fedoskino "troika" insignia can be found on the interior of the lid. The box has a hinge above the composition and rests on a flat bottom. It is signed with the name of the artist, village, and year (1998). This well-done seascape has a classic, timeless quality. Fine work!
