Artist: Aldoshkin Yuriy
Size: 5.5x7.5x2.5
Size (inches): 2.25x3x1
Price : $1150 SOLD!


This genuine piece of Russian artistry is a masterful representation of natural beauty. Yuriy Aldoshkin of Fedoskino is the talent responsible for this brilliant work. From detail to decoration, spectacular. This is what the world of Russian lacquer miniature artistry is all about.
In this work the artist has painted a beautiful winter landscape. The fresh snow blankets the ground and although the wind is still, you can feel the cold bite of the evening on your skin. Blue-lilac colored paints that easily represent a soft evening dominate the palette. Gold paint is used to paint the crosses of the cathedrals, and to highlight some of the trees. The landscape is painted to look very authentic and there is a good sense of the rural atmosphere that the people living here must feel.
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 scene is framed with a gold line, another gold line wraps around the box's sides. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino, the year of 2006, and the title on the inner side of the lid.
