Title: Moscow.Andronnikov Monastery
Artist: Aldoshkin Yuriy
Size: 10.5x8x2.5
Size (inches): 4x3.25x1
Price : $1250 SOLD!


Yuriy Aldoshkin of Fedoskino is the exceptional talent behind this intricate beauty. It is one of the more elaborate landscape pieces that any collector will come across. Aldoshkin has fine tuned his skill in such a way that the mere thought of Fedoskino realism brings to mind Aldoshkin's name.
The box shows a beautiful view of the ancient Spaso-Andronikov Monastery that was founded in 1360 and was used as the eastern bastion of Moscow. The famous icon-painter, Andrey Rublev, was this monastery's monk at the end of XIV - the beginning of XV centuries. He was buried there too.
Aldoshkin uses here a palette that implements very cool tones throughout the scene. He sets the scene during winter to match the colors in the architecture, which brings out the quiet and spiritual atmosphere of the monastery. Each angle is precise that helps provide an accurate portrayal of the perspectives in the scene. The lines are delicately configured with a manipulation of paint that gives this painting a photo-like quality. Aluminum is used as well to provide the piece with added luster and brilliance. Gold paint highlights the cupolas and some of the trees.
The scene is framed with a gold band, another gold band can be found wrapping around the box's sides.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer mixed with gold dust is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge is fastened to the top of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, the title ("Moscow. The Andronikov Monastery"), and the village of Fedoskino on the lid's interior.
