Title: The Russian Bride's Attire
Artist: Penkovskaya Marie
Size: 18.5x12.5x4
Size (inches): 7.25x5x1.5
Price : $1350 SOLD!


Radiating with the brilliance of mother-of-pearl and wonderful oil paints, this box painted by Penkovskaya Marie is a reproduction of an oil-on-canvas painting by Russian artist Konstantin Makovskiy (1839-1915). A popular but always exquisite composition, this can be a highlight of any collection!
The work is called "The Russian Bride's Attire" and was painted by Makovskiy in 1884.
The composition depicts a moment when the bride is preparing for a wedding ceremony. Her mother and other relatives are making a hairdo. May one more hour and she will not be free...
Penkovskaya has wonderfully entwined the realism of Makovskiy with the magical beauty of Fedoskino miniature. The wispy veil of the bride has been depicted with transparent paints. Shading and color variation, although not readily noticeable, add tremendous realism to the composition. The artist has taken advantage of the original positioning of each of the characters facing the newlyweds, and has painted each face with extreme life-like detail and expression!
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's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box rests on a flat bottom. Signed with the artist's name.
