This amazingly beautiful box is a creation of one of the leading Fedoskino artists, Sergey Kozlov. This prominent Fedoskino artist was born in 1955 in the ancient town of Dmitrov. He graduated from the Fedoskino Art School in 1974. His teachers were G. Larishev, S. Monashov and P. Davydov. He is a member of the USSR Union of Artists since 1983. His works are exhibited in many Russian museums. The artist frequently participates in international art exhibitions and has many prizes including the National Prize of Russia.
Sergey Kozlov has his individual style of painting. He is a master of exquisite and refined painting technique. He combines reflective lacquer surfaces, oils and "through-painting" with translucent paints, preferring to use a cold blue and gray palette in his compositions. By applying an undercoat of gold and mother-of-pearl, he achieves striking color effects and gives his painted scenes a rich glow. His works are in very high demand among collectors in Russia, Europe and the US.
The beauty of Russian countryside is expressed here with a great skill and an emotional excitement. Large and brilliant piece of mother-of-pearl shines through the cathedrals and the trees painted in the foreground creating an illusion of sun flooded area. Gold paint is used to paint the crosses of the cathedrals and to highlight their architecture.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes its interior. On the box sides the artist has painted an imitation of stone using silver paint. A hinge is fastened to the left 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 2009.
