The Top 10 Fedoskino artist Igor Isaev is fond of painting architecture of old Russian provincial towns. He has already created a series of works drawn on this theme, and this box that features the old Russian architecture in Moscow, continues this series.
The box called "Sunset at Levitan's hill.Town of Plyos" and shows us fragment of an old wall of Church in Plyos,which is the ancient Russian town on the Volga river.
The foundation of Plyos dates from the second half of the 12th century. The small fortress was founded in the northeast suburb of the Vladimir-Suzdal princedom as a fort of Russian colonization of the Volga bank occupied by the Finnish tribe. Together with other towns, Plyos fortress served as a strong point of Northeast Russia in the struggle against the state of Great Bulgar for the Volga trading way.
In 1980 within the territory of this ancient picturesque town the historical, art and architectural museum reserve was founded. The most remarkable point of interest in Plyos is its unique architectural and landscaping complex. This complex includes about three hundred historical and cultural monuments. Among them there is the house-museum of the world famous landscape painter, Isaak Levitan, who worked there during 1888-1889 together with his friends, A.S. Stepanov and S.P. Kuvshinnikova. The result of this work is the brilliant painting "Evening. Golden Plyos" painted by Levitan in 1889, and many other masterpieces. In the building of former female grammar school there is the exhibition dedicated to the folk art of the Ivanovo region where displayed works of Palekh and Kholui lacquer miniature painters.
The artist masterfully painted the old architecture. Gold paint highlights the foliage of trees and bushes, the wall, cupolas of the Church on the background.
The box's exterior that is free from painting is covered with creamy paint. The box's interior is traditionally red and has some leaves of gold glued there.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene and the box is rests flat. The masterpice is signed with the artist's name, the village of Fedoskino, the year of 2014 and the title.
