Talented artist from the village of Fedoskino Nazarova Margarita has painted this attractive female portrait. This portrait is a copy from the oil-on-canvas painted by Konstantin Egorovich Makovsky (1839-1915).
Exceptional technique and masterful skill are needed to create this work. It is as entrancing as it is traditional.
Konstantin Makovsky is a Russian painter, a representative of academic romanticism. Was born in the family of Egor Makovsky, an accountant and an amateur painter. Studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture (1851-1858) under S.K. Zaryanko. The formation of artist's personality and creative works were much influenced by the acquaintance with V.A. Tropinin. In 1958 he entered Petersburg Academy of Arts. In 1963 he took part in the "Riot of fourteens", left the Academy, and became one of the founder members of "Itinerants Comradeship" (1870). Since 1833 began to expose his personal works. In his creation, the artist kept to romanticism concept. Russian history plots and vital issues of people's life usually became the themes of his life depiction. Best known as a painter of Russian folk scenes, especially of rural peasant life ("Boyarynya Bearing a Tray", "Children Running from the Storm", "By the Stove", etc.). His works are kept at the Tretyakov State Gallery, the State Russian Museum and many other regional museums all over Russia.
The portrait on a box is framed with a thin gold line. Two parallel gold lines wrap around the box's sides.
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. The lid is hinged from the left of the portrait, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and Fedoskino'13.
