Title: Lumberjack's dream
Artist: Anokhin Pavel
Size: 10x13x2
Size (inches): 4x5x0.75
Price : $2750 SOLD!


This unusual work was painted by the famous 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 was published in a book, photos showing that.
The box shows a young lumberjack's, sleeping under the tree. This man has worked hard and got tired. In his dreams he is getting higher and higher on this tree, and we can see that on the top of the tree he has wings and start flying with the birds.
Composition is framed with two silver lines.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. White lacquer covers the exterior and creamy gray lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box has a hinge to the left of the composition and rests on four small metal legs. It is signed with the artist name.
