Artist: Sedov Dmitriy
Size: 19.5x15.5x4
Size (inches): 7.75x6x1.5
Price: $1250 $1000

This beautiful landscape was painted by Dmitriy Sedov. Here the artist depicts the thrilling state of nature, a sudden change of seasons. The first snow has fallen covering the tops of the trees, the frost during the night has held down the river waters...Only a small spot where ducks were swimed stayed open. On a bank of the river green and yellow grass peeps out from the snowdrifts. Nature is silent and ready to sleep during the long winter... Only ducks are coming togeter and in a day or so they will fly away to warm places.
On the background we can see a beautiful fortress of the 17-18th century. Over the fortress wall there is an Orthodox Church, everything point us to an old Russian town.
Composition is complex and shows us outstanding skills of an author. Three pieces of mother-of-pearl are shining through the surface and give additional glamourous effect. One is shines through an ice-hole, another-in the skies, and the third one through a body of a duck to the left from a center of the composition.
Blue, gray and white tones are dominated in this scene.
The exterior of the box is covered with black oils. Elegant gold line ornamentation frames the composition. The sides of the box are decorated with golden dots and simple snowflakes. The box's interior is traditionally red.
The box is made out of paper-mache. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition. The box sits flat. It is signed with the artist's name, and the village of Fedoskino.
By the way, the composition and painting are of the highest quality, Top level of Fedoskino!!! If the artist will work this way, might be a new Sergey Kozlov in years, who knows?
