Title: St.Basils Cathedral
Artist: Chirkov Alexander
Size: 13.5x17x6.5
Size (inches): 5.25x6.75x2.5
Price : $1450 SOLD!


This splendid view of the St.-Basil's Cathedral has been painted by the talented Fedoskino artist Alexander Chirkov.
Chirkov has used bright red tones of oils to paint the cathedral whereas the buildings located in the background are painted in light grey tones. This creates the depth of the composition, and focuses the viewer's attention on the cathedral. A large piece of mother-of-pearl shines brightly through the architecture of the cathedral. Additional luster of the cathedral comes from gold and silver paints. Both gold and silver paints create brilliance of the pavement; gold paint is used to highlight the clouds in the sky.
The scene is outlined with gold. The box's sides are decorated with elegant tartan patterns painted in blue and red oils and outlined with gold.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the piece. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the artist's name, the village Fedoskino, the year of 2007, and the title (“The St.-Basil's Cathedral”).
