This charming composition has been painted by a talented Fedoskino artist Tatiana Anisimova shows very colorful woman in Russian costume. Originally this composition was painted on oil-on-canvas by a well-known Russian artist Ivan Semenovich Kulikov and shows his wife in Russian costume(1916). Kept in Kulikov's house-museum in town of Murom.
Ivan Semyonovich Kulikov(1870-1945), was not an ordinary painter; he was also a teacher, and an author of insightful portraits and a faithful and loving depicter of the Russian way of life. His life was bookended by the Vladimir region, for he was born in town of Murom, and died in the same city.
His initial artistic training was at the drawing school of the Society for the Encouragement of the Arts (1893-96), where one of his instructors was the well-known painter and graphic artist Ernest Lipgardt. At the Academy of Fine Arts (1896-1902), his instructors influenced him greatly, especially the Peredvizhniki masters Vladimir Makovsky and Ilya Repin. Whilst he was studying at the Academy, he assisted Ilya Repin in the painting ofA Ceremonial Meeting of the State Council (1900). In 1902, Ivan Kulikov completed his studies after winning a gold medal for his paintings In a Peasant Izba and A Portrait of the Architect V. A. Shchuko. He also won a three-year sabbatical abroad at the expense of the Academy and formal recognition as an artist. To be honest, the three years he spent in Italy and France did not influence his style greatly. In 1904 and 1912, he won the first prize at the Competition of the Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, and he won a silver medal at the World Exhibition in Liège. Ivan Kulikov was named an academician of painting in 1915.
The best creative period of Kulikov was between 1910 and 1915. By 1915, the guns of war were speaking. If the First World War left some unaffected, the ensuing Revolution and Civil War was a tragedy for all Russians without exception. Some, of course, emigrated with the White Army. However, Kulikov returned to his hometown of Murom and resumed his work there. From 1930, he taught at the art studio of Murom. In both Murom and the village of Pavlov, he contributed to the local museums. In short, Ivan Kulikov sowed nothing but good, which cannot help being beautiful.
The composition is framed with a gold line. The sides of the box are decorated with Scottish ornament painted against the blue background.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the left of the portrait, and the box rests on the four legs. The box is signed with the artist's name and dated.
