Title: Alyonushka
Artist: Ivanov I.
Size: 15.5x10x4.5
Size (inches): 6.25x4x1.75
Price : $340 SOLD!


This detailed composition was painted by Fedoskino artist I. Ivanov with astounding detail. It is an interpretation of a canvas-on-oil painting called "Alyonushka". Painted in 1881 by Viktor Vasnetsov, it currently hangs in the Tretyakov Gallery. During all his life this artist was inspired by Russian folklore, especially by Russian fairy-tales and legends, and this passion is reflected in his works. This scene isn't exception as Alyonushka is the heroine of many Russian fairy-tales, for instance of the popular tale "Alyonushka and her brother Ivanushka". Among his other works we may call "Three Bogatyrs" (1898), "The Frog Tsarevna" (1918), "The Tale of the Sleeping Beauty" (1900-26), and "The Unsmiling Tsarevna" (1916-26)
Victor Vasnetsov (1848-1926) made his artistic debut in the late 1870s and early 1880s. His pictures raised interest in Russian folklore by creating images from folk tales and heroic legends. Historic events and characters appear in Vasnetsov's works as they were preserved in the memory of the people. Vasnetsov's artistic quest coincided by and large with the aspirations of young Moscow artists who sought to revive folk forms in art and revitalize the Russian folk crafts (the Abramtsevo Art Circle). It should be mentioned that "Alyonushka" was also painted by Vasnetsov in the village of Abramtsevo.
The box's sides are decorated with beautiful gold ornamentation.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the left of the composition, and the box sits on a flat bottom. The box is signed with the name of the artist, and year (2005).
