The art heritage of the great Russian painter, Konstantin Makovsky, inspires many Fedoskino artists to create copies of his masterpieces. This gorgeous box shows a version of the famous painting "Boyaryshnya Sitting at the Window and Spinning Yarn" painted by Konstantin Makovsky in 1890. This famous painting is exhibited in the Art Museum of the town of Nizhny Novgorod.
The scene is masterfully painted in the realistic style. Gold powder is mixed with oils to accentuate richness of the boyaryshnya's costume.
The scene is framed with a gold line; the box's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge is fastened to the left of the scene, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed with the artist's initials (A.V.- Antonov Victor), and the year of 2005.
