This traditional Palekh box has been painted by Yugeniy Populov. Yugeniy was born in 1958 in the village of Veselovka, Chelyabinsk Region. Now he resides in the village of Palekh. During 1977-1982 the artist studied in the Palekh Art School. His teachers were B.M. Nemtinov, Yu.A. Brovkin, V.M. Astakhov. During 1982-1989 he worked in the Palekh workshops. Participant of various exhibitions since 1988. Rewarded with the USSR Ministry of Culture diploma. Themes of his works - literature, folklore and genre scenes.
The box shows a scene from the Russian classic tale “The Princess Frog”. Here we can see one of Ivan's older brothers who have carried the beautiful bride into the palace. The scene is an absolute delight. The details within the scene are enhanced tremendously by the golden and aluminum contours illuminating each and every inch of the moment composed. Lavish colors and intricate designs patterned upon the clothes of the characters are something to behold. The clarity within the scene is also very impressive. This box is very beautiful.
The scene is framed with gold beads; the box's sides are decorated with gold floral patterns accented with aluminum.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge from the top of the scene, and rests on four legs. Signed with the artist's name, Palekh, the title and the year of 2007.
