Title: Mucha style
Artist: Kubareva Masha
Size: 3.5x8x2
Size (inches): 1.25x3.25x0.75
Price : $475 SOLD!


This small charming box that shows a beautiful lady with flowers, has been painted by Masha Kubareva.
If you will take a closer look, the composition will remind you "Mucha style".
"Mucha style" is also known as the Art Nouveau style invented by Alphonse Mucha (1860 -1939), a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist. This style is characterized by twisting and swirling flower motifs. Mucha's works frequently featured beautiful healthy young women in flowing vaguely Neoclassical looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind the women's heads.
The scene is painted in mustard tones of oils against the cream background. Gold powder shines through the oils, creating a shimmer of the lady's dress, and of some flowers of her wreath.
The box's exterior is of appealing cream tone; the sides are decorated with a wide gold band completed with a nice pattern composed of white petals that is painted in oils. Bright gold paint also borders the box's interior edges; the rest part of the interior is traditionally red.
The box is made out of paper-mache. The box has a hinge from the left of the scene, and rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, and the year of 2007 on the box's exterior bottom.
