Description:

Lyubov Goleneva from the village of Fedoskino is the creator of this splendid portrait. The box demonstrates the artist's interpretation of the oil on canvas painting originally painted in 1848 by Philip Budkin (1806-1850 ). Named "A Girl Standing Before the Mirror", this masterpiece is kept in the Belarus National Art Museum.
Philip Budkin was a famous Russian portrait painter. He created splendid portraits of his contemporaries including members of imperial family such as "Portrait of Nikolay I" (1837), "Portrait of Prince Dundukov-Korsakov" (1845) and well-known people of that epoch like "Portrait of the great Russian painter, K.P. Brullov" (1845). For the portrait of Prince Dundukov-Korsakov Budkin was awarded with a title of academician
The artist has wonderfully entwined the realism of Budkin with the magical beauty of Fedoskino miniature. She has mixed oil paints with gold powder to accentuate richness of the woman's costume. Exceptional technique and masterful skill are needed to create this work.
The scene is framed with a gold line; the box's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines.
The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. A hinge is fastened to the left of the portrait, and the box rests on a flat bottom. The work is signed with the artist's name and the year of 2011.
