Title: Winter Night
Artist: Svyachenkov
Size: 16x12.5x2
Size (inches): 6.25x5x0.75
Price : $850 SOLD!


The talented Fedoskino landscape painter Svyatchenkov painted this winter scene. The cold full moon shines in the dark sky, and illuminates the snowy expanses of the Russian countryside. A little puff of smoke rises from the chimneys of the cozy peasant houses. The crowns of the trees wrapped in snow glisten in the moonlight. The horse rides along the deserted road and pulls the sledge with a peasant sitting in it. Another peasant strolls in the forest with his dog.
The scene is painted in dark blue and white tones of oils that help to reproduce the atmosphere of a winter night. Silver paint highlights the crowns of trees imitating a glimmer of the snow.
The scene is framed with a thin line painted in white oils. Two parallel lines painted in white oils can be found wrapping around the box's sides.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. A hinge is fastened to the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino and the year of 2007.
