Title: Portrait of an Old Man
Artist: Dokuchaev Yevgeniy
Size: 9.5x12.5x2.5
Size (inches): 3.75x5x1
Price : $465 SOLD!


Yevgeniy Dokuchaev of Fedoskino is the exceptional talent responsible for this splendid box. Portraiture is his favorite theme in art, and each of his boxes demonstrates his skill in painting strikingly realistic portraits of different people with diminutive brushstrokes. It is very difficult to achieve as this genre requires experience in lacquer miniature art and a special talent of a portrait painter.
The box depicts a portrait of an old man. Looking at his wise, wrinkled face we are transported into the epoch when he lived; we start to think over his life, and it seems we understand his inner life and may say what he is thinking about.
The portrait is framed with a gold line. Two parallel gold lines can be found wrapping around the box's sides.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge from the left of the portrait, and rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the artist's name.
