This unusual work was painted by the famous Fedoskino artist Pavel Anokhin. It is painted in the style which is unusual for Fedoskino School of miniature painting. To a great extent it is close to the style of surrealism. In painting and sculpture surrealism is one of the leading influences of the 20th century. In this century it also admired, and included in its exhibitions, works by the Italian Giorgio de Chirico, the Russian Marc Chagall, the Swiss Paul Klee, the French artists Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia, and the Spaniard Pablo Picasso. Surrealist painting exhibits great variety of content and technique. That of Salvador Dali, for example, consists of more or less a direct and photographic transcription of dreams.
The box shows a young handsome man, holding a cage with a bird. The composition is painted in gray and blue tones. A line made of mother-of-pear is bordered the composition.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and light gray lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge to the left of the compposition and rests on four small metal legs. It is signed by the artist.
Description of the text on a sides:
The mind was amazed,
And din't recognize anything:
Nor lie neither the thruth,
Are the same,and never be sorry for anynone.
