Description:

The talented Fedoskino portrait painter Olga Kruglova created this breathtaking interpretation of a canvas-on-oil painting "Boyaryshnya Sitting Near the Window with the Spinning Wheel ". This masterpiece was originally painted by Konstantin Makovsky in the 1890s. The original oil painting is exhibited in the Art Museum in the town of Nizhny Novgorod.
The artist has wonderfully entwined the realism of Makovsky with the magical beauty of Fedoskino miniature. She has mixed oil paints with gold powder to accentuate richness of the woman's costume. Gold powder shines through the woman's kokoshnik and through her jewelry.
The scene is framed with a gold line; the box's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines.
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. A hinge is fastened to the left of the scene, and the box rests on legs. The work is signed with the artist's name.
