Title: At the Fence
Artist: Shavirin Boris
Size: 10.5x15x3
Size (inches): 4x6x1.25
Price : $495 SOLD!


This detailed and well-known composition was painted by Shavirin Boris from Fedoskino. It shows a village beauty standing at the fence.
The first time this subject was painted in the end of 1800s.
The appealing face of young lady is painted so skillfully that we can read on it different emotions and thoughts; colorful peasant's costume is painted with a lot of details. The palette used is based on earthtones that help to reproduce a rural landscape; the exception is the bright-multicolored cloth of the young lady.
The airiness and spaciousness of the countryside unfolds around them. Wooden peasant's houses on the riverbank, boundless meadows and fields, the idyllic forest, full of flowers, shrubbery and trees make up a beautiful view, which fit perfectly for the first declaration of love.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The composition is framed with gold scrollwork. The sides of the box are adorned with the beautiful gold floral patterns highlighted with red and white oil paints. A hinge is fastened to the left of the composition. The box rests on a flat bottom. It is signed with the name of the artist, village and year (2010).
