Title: Winter Landscape
Artist: Kirsanov Sergey
Size: 13.5x11.5x3
Size (inches): 5.25x4.5x1.25
Price : $950 SOLD!


This beautiful winter scene has been painted by famous Fedoskino artist Sergey Kirsanov. Sergey is an expert in painting landscapes. In his works he doesn't exaggerate the modest beauty of Russian countryside, and finds a special charm in ramshackle peasant houses, small wooden churches, and dirty village roads. This demonstrates his sincere love to his native land!
Pink and white tones of oils suitable for reproduction of a winter scene dominate here. A large piece of the mother-of-pearl is set into the whole area of the sky to create a pinkish glow of the sunset. The other piece of mother-of-pearl is set into the river's ice!
The space on the lid and the sides that is free from painting is covered with very thin dark veins to imitate coloring of a stone. Composition is bordered with elegant silver scan patterns composed of tiny shapes hand punched from silver metal sheets and then painstakingly affixed by hand to the box. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior's bottom of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and a year of 2008.
