ATTENTION: 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!
Boris Shavirin is the author of this interesting box painted on a theme of history. In the foreground he has painted the Russian family, a husband, a wife and their two children, that lived in the seventeenth/eighteenth century in Moscow. Looking at this scene the viewer can easily imagine how the citizens of Moscow looked like several centuries ago.
Light blue and gray tones of oils suitable for depiction of a winter scene predominate here. The costumes of the characters are decorated richly with brilliant gold patterns!!! Gold metal leaf inlay can be found in the kokoshnik of the depicted woman and in the cupolas of the cathedral painted in the foreground.Several pieces of mother-of-pearl are in-laid under the painting.
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer with silver paint covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the left of the scene, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name, Fedoskino, and the year of 2016.
