The Top 10 Fedoskino artist Igor Isaev is fond of painting architecture of old Russian provincial towns. He has already created a series of works drawn on this theme, and this box that features the old Russian town, Yaroslavl, continues this series.
Preceded by Viking sites such as Timerevo from the 8th or 9th centuries, the city of Yaroslavl is said to have been founded in 1010 as an outpost of the Principality of Rostov Veliky, and was first mentioned in 1071. Capital of an independent Principality of Yaroslavl from 1218, it was incorporated into the Grand Duchy of Moscow in 1463. In the 17th century, it was Russia's second largest city, and for a time (during the Polish occupation of Moscow in 1612), the country's de facto capital. Today, Yaroslavl is an important industrial center (petrochemical plant, tire manufacturing plant, diesel engines plant and many others) and lies at the intersection of several major highways, railways, and waterways.
The artist masterfully painted the 19th century architecture, and the quiet cozy streets of Yaroslavl. Silver paint highlights the foliage of trees and bushes as the action takes place in winter. Gold paint shines through the roofs, through the clouds painted on the top of the lid. The composition is framed with the golden band.
The box's exterior that is free from painting is covered with light grey paint; and this light gray area is studded with tiny dark grey veins. The box's interior is traditionally red and decorated with gold leaves, that are glued inside.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged to the top of the scene. Signed with the artist's name, the village of Fedoskino, the year of 2012 and the title ("Evening Yaroslavl").
Fine box!
