Title: Winter Troyka
Artist: Nikolaev Alexander
Size: 18.5x14.5x4
Size (inches): 7.25x5.75x1.5
Price : $425 SOLD!


Nikolaev Alexander is the artist who has painted this traditional Palekh box that features a loving couple riding in the carriage. The coachman whips quietly the horses with the reins making them race faster and faster.
Subdued tones of tempera paints predominate here. Gold and aluminum paint is applied within the composition to add brightness and detail. The application of metallic paint is very subtle yet yields great results.
The edges of the lid are decorated with simple pattern. The box's sides are adorned with an elegant leafy pattern completed with silver flowers.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while dark red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The box has a hinge from the top of the scene, and rests flat. The work is signed with the artist's name and the village of Palekh.
