Title: Peasant Girl with a Jar
Artist: Zayakina Olga
Size: 10x8x4
Size (inches): 4x3.25x1.5
Price: $475 $350

The talented young artist Olga Zayakina from the village of Fedoskino created this portrait of a peasant girl. She holds the jar filled with fresh milk that she carries for her parents who work in the field.
The palette is arranged in a way to get picture quality details with blending of paints and transitioning of colors. Shading and color variations reveal contours in the girl's facial expression and her intricately drawn costume. The ruffles in her sleeves seem to waver in the breeze.
The artist continues to paint the blue sky tinged with a pink gleam of the setting sun on the box's sides. The lower part of the sides is decorated with a gold floral pattern accented with red oils. The box's external bottom is covered with dark lilac paint, its interior is traditionally red.
The box is constructed out of paper-mache. The box has a hinge from the left of the composition, and rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed by O. Zayakina.
