Title: Water carrier
Artist: Evmenenko Igor
Size: 10x6.5x4.5
Size (inches): 4x2.5x1.75
Price : $375 SOLD!


This genre scene was created by the talented Fedoskino artist Igor Evmenenko. The composition shows a handsome water carrier standing near the water cart, and a young beautiful woman carrying a yoke. The lad fills the big barrel of his water cart with water, and looks back at the young woman, moving away from the riverbank.May be at this moment he is paying a compliment to her.
The scene is painted in warm red, white, greenish and brownish tones against the soft yellow background. The yellow tones predominate here, as they fit perfectly for the reproduction of a hot, sunny day. The scene has a very warm atmosphere with the spirit and beauty of the Russian countryside. Luxuriant trees and bushes, the smooth surface of the river, the dusty road, running somewhere in the distance are painted very naturally and delicately. The characters are also well drawn. With precise hair-thin strokes, Evmenenko has given them expressive features, showing their emotions, and also created their plain, peasant costumes.
The sides of the box are adorned with intricate gold filigree designs. The box is made out of high-quality paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The Fedoskino "troika" insignia can be found on the interior of the lid. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box sits on a flat bottom. The box is signed with the name of the artist and village, and year (1996).
