Title: Portrait of Queen Elizabeth I
Artist: Maslova Valentina
Size: 4x5x0.5
Size (inches): 1.5x2x0.25
Price : $110 SOLD!


Artist Valentina Maslova from the village of Fedoskino is the author of this exquisite work.
On the oval piece of mother-of-pearl the artist has painted her interpretation of the famous portrait of Queen Elizabeth I originally painted in 1600 by Isaac Oliver. This portrait can be viewed at Hatfield House. Oliver was a pupil of Elizabeth's favorite court painter, Nicholas Hilliard, and the brother-in-law of Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger. Elizabeth was in her late sixties when this portrait was made, but for iconographic purposes she is portrayed as young and beautiful.
The oval pearl plate on which the portrait is painted is set into the frame made out of German silver. The portrait is framed with swirling metal patterns. It is painted in oils, and splendor of the Queen's costume is accentuated by silver paint. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino and the year of 2009.
