Title: Heroes of Caucasus
Artist: Tretiakov Viktor
Size: 9.5x12.5x2.5
Size (inches): 3.75x5x1
Price : $850 SOLD!


This gorgeous piece of Russian lacquer artistry was created by the talented Victor Tretyakov of Fedoskino. In this work he has painted heroes of the Caucasian War of 1817-1864, also known as the Russian conquest of the Caucasus. A blend of blue, brown and grey tones of oils help the artist to create a mountain landscape. The depicted characters, their military uniform, and horses are painted in the realistic style with a lot of various details.< br> The scene is framed with a very thin 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. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name.
