Title: Flying Ship
Artist: Anokhin Pavel
Size: 15.5x11.5x5
Size (inches): 6x4.5x2
Price : $5950 SOLD!


This magnificent work was painted by the outstanding Fedoskino artist Pavel Anokhin. It is painted in the style which is unusual for Fedoskino School of miniature painting. To a great extent it is close to the style of surrealism.
In painting and sculpture surrealism is one of the leading influences of the 20th century. In this century it also admired, and included in its exhibitions, works by the Italian Giorgio de Chirico, the Russian Marc Chagall, the Swiss Paul Klee, the French artists Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia, and the Spaniard Pablo Picasso. Surrealist painting exhibits great variety of content and technique. That of Salvador Dali, for example, consists of more or less a direct and photographic transcription of dreams.
The box shows a loving couple sit on the back of a ship. But it isn't ordinary ship, it is a flying one.There several pullers on this ship. Each one has oar feather like. If you look at the composition attentively you'll see that the boat is flying over the earth and even birds are flying under this ship.
The composition is painted mostly in gray tones.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache made in the village of Fedoskino. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. There are intricate decorations on all sides of the box. The box has a hinge to its top and rests on a flat bottom. The box has a lock and it is working very well!!! (Key is included). The box is signed and dated (1991, 2007) by the artist.
P.S. the composition was the diploma of the artist, that is why it has two dates.
