ATTENTION: exactly this box was displayed on an Expo devoted to the 220th anniversary of Fedoskino Art, which took place in the historical place of Moscow, Kolomenskoye district, from May till October 2016!
This gorgeous box is a variation of the ORIGINAL Master's creatiom painted by Fedoskino artist Pavel Anokhin some time ago, but it was displayed on the Expo!!!
Pavel was born in 1967 in the town of Dolgoprudniy situated near Moscow. He graduated Fedoskino art school in 1989 and in 1992-1995 he worked in the Fedoskino art school as a teacher. His approach to miniature painting is philosophical and he puts his thoughts behind every work. His goal is to be recognized as one of the top Fedoskino artists of his generation and to have his miniature paintings be around for centuries to come. Pavel lives in Moscow suburb with his wife and 3 children.
Anokhin uses a striking combination of pale, misty oils, gold metallic paints, and delicate, feathery brushstrokes to create this work. Here he depicts the artist who demonstrates his strange, magic picture. This picture looks like a window into medieval Russia. It shows a skomorokh (a vagrant actor in ancient Russia) who gives his breathtaking fire performance to a crowd of people in the street of medieval Moscow. He breathes the fire out his throat, and the flood of fire breaks through the picture, and comes outside the picture.
Gold paint is used to detail the characters' hair, and to create a sparkle of the glass the skomorokh holds in his hands. Gold paint also helps to animate Anokhin's otherworldly palette filled with the pale green, brown and lilac oils. The scene is framed with a wide band painted in gold.
A small metal knob is attached to the lid's front side to open the box easily. The box rests on four legs that ended up with metal.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Blue lacquer covers the exterior and gray creamy lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene. The box is signed with the artist's name.
The only available RUSSIAN version of the expo Book will be added for free with a purchase of the box!
