Title: Winter in Saint Petersbourg
Artist: Tretiakov Viktor
Size: 14.5x11x4.5
Size (inches): 5.75x4.25x1.75
Price : $550 SOLD!


This adorable piece of authentic Russian artistry was created by the talented Victor Tretyakov of Fedoskino. It depicts a beautiful winter scene. It's frosty evening on the eve of Christmas, and the road leading to the St. Isaac's Cathedral is bestrewed with people. Some of them ride; the others go along the road on foot or drive in the carriages. Some of them hasten to celebrate Christmas with their families and friends, while the others intend to attend prayer service in the St. Isaac's Cathedral.
Different shades of blue suitable for depiction of a winter scene dominate here. The palette is very natural, containing colors very close to what would be found in nature. The artist paints the horses' movements to be very realistic, and one gets the sense that they are not still. Great detail goes into the depiction of the landscape and the architecture.
This lacquer box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The scene is framed with a gold line. Two parallel gold lines decorate the sides of the box. A hinge is fastened to the top of the composition for ease of opening. The box rests on four legs. The work is signed by the artist.
