Title: Views of Moscow (dual-sided box)
Artist: Tugarinov Mikhail
Size: 18x3x11.5
Size (inches): 7x1.25x4.5
Price : $850 SOLD!


This purse-shaped double-sided box shows us views of the Moscow Kremlin's cathedrals in winter. The box has been created by talented Fedoskino painter Mikhail Tugarinov. Mikhail was born in 1965 in the town of Dmitrov. In 1971 he has finished the Fedoskino Art School, where he studied under such well-known Fedoskino masters as Antonov and Chizhov. His painting style is influenced by the works of the prominent Fedoskino artist, Piotr Puchkov. Mikhail paints his composition mostly in cold tones, applying traditional painting methods. He cuts mother-of-pearl into a box by himself. This process is very difficult and not many painters can do it.
On the one side of the box we can see panoramic view of Red Square with red brick wall and St.Basil's Cathedral.
On the other side we can see another panoramic view to the Temple of Christ the Savior from Kremlin side.
Blue, white and gray tones of oils dominate here. Brilliant pieces of mother-of-pearl shine through the architecture of the St.Basil's Cathedral and the the Temple of Christ the Savior. Gold metal leaf inlay is used to create a sparkle of the cathedrals' domes.
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 bottom of the scenes, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, the year of 2011 and the village of Fedoskino.
