Title: Old Russian Town
Artist: Mikhaleova Anzhela
Size: 16.5x8x3.5
Size (inches): 6.5x3.25x1.25
Price : $950 SOLD!


This splendid piece of genuine Russian artistry was composed by the talented Fedoskino artist, Anzhela Mikhalyova. In this work the artist has masterfully expressed a peculiar charm of Russian countryside. Though the palette isn't bright the scene radiates from within. This effect has been achieved with the help of mother-of-pearl inlay that shines brightly through the architecture, the grass and the sky in the center and in the right part of the composition. The palette is also enriched by silver and gold powders used as an underlayer for the oils.
The edges of the lid are adorned with a wide, brilliant gold band. The artist continues to paint branches of the oak covered with burning gold leaves on the box's sides. This acts as an original decoration for the box.
The box is constructed out of paper-ache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge from the top of the scene, and rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, and the village of Fedoskino.
