Title: Winter Riding
Artist: Tretiakov Viktor
Size: 16x12x5
Size (inches): 6.25x4.75x2
Price : $795 SOLD!


This box painted by well-known artist Viktor Tretiakov shows the traditional theme of a speeding troika. This tradition sprang from the very beginning of lacquer ware production in Russia when the first lacquer workshop was founded by Peter Korobov in the village of Danilkovo (now Fedoskino). At that time the theme of peasant everyday life was very popular among painters.
On this box we can see the young coachman whips the three horses with the reins making them race faster. On the back of the composition we can see beautiful winter landscape and the houses at the edge of a village.
The scene is painted in various shades of gray, blue and white oils suitable for reproduction of a dull winter day. Details on a painting are amazing!
Composition is bordered with a golden line.Two parallel gold lines are decorated the sides of the box.
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 box has a hinge from the top of the scene, and rests on four legs. The work is signed by the artist.
Fine Box!
