Title: Portrait of a Woman
Artist: Nazarova Margarita
Size: 9x12x4
Size (inches): 3.5x4.75x1.5
Price : $495 SOLD!


This exquisite portrait of a beautiful lady was painted by Margarita Nazarova of Fedoskino. The portraits like this one were very popular at the beginning of the ninetieth century. At that time P.V. Lukutin factory produced a large number of lacquered boxes depicting young beautiful ladies.
This piece is truly a work of art, from top to bottom! Here the artist has combined brilliant skill with oil paints in shading, coloring, texturing, and a gift for realism. The portrait is framed with a gold line. Two parallel gold lines decorate the box's sides.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the left side of the portrait, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed by the artist's name, the year of 2010 and the village of Fedoskino.
