Title: Street in a town of Uglich
Artist: Isaev Igor
Size: 3.5x3x2.5
Size (inches): 1.5x1.25x1
Price : $1150 SOLD!


The talented Fedoskino artist I. Isaev continues his series of works dedicated to old Russian towns. He is an expert in painting Russian pre-revolution architecture that can be found in each small provincial town. This time the artist has chosen to depict the town of Uglich.
Founded in 1148, Uglich is one of the most beloved old towns in Russia. The view of the town situated on the banks of the Volga River is especially lovely with the Resurrection Cathedral and the Dmitry Blood's Church looming on the horizon. At the end of the 16th century, Marya Nagaya, the seventh wife of Ivan the Terrible, lived in honorary exile in the Uglich Kremlin. In the garden of the Uglich Kremlin her son, 7-year old Tsarevich Dmitry, was found dead with his throat cut, and on that place the Dmitry Blood's Church was built and stands today.
The scene painted on the lid is extended on the front side of the box's body. Here the artist masterfully painted the quiet cozy street of Uglich, and its 19th century architecture. The buildings and the road are painted over gold paint covering; aluminum paint is used to paint the clouds and some of the trees.
The scene is framed with two gold parallel lines. The box's exterior that is free from painting, is covered with light grey paint, and this light grey area is studded with innumerable number of tiny dark grey veins. The box's interior is covered with red lacquer.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged at top, and the box sits flat. Signed with the artist's name, the village of Fedoskino, the year of 2006 and the title ("A Street in Uglich").
