This intersting composition has been painted by well-known Fedoskino artist Marie Wagner. It shows us a scene from a real life of the 18th century in Russia, when a young man came to a father of a young lady and asked about her hand and permition to marry her.
The palette is recognizible to what the artist has painted in her style and colors. The composition is filled with diminutive details!!! Some of them are not discernible without the help of a magnifying glass. The expressive detail within the characters and the elaborate nature of the architecture are the two most impressive facets of these compositions. Creativity and tradition are abundant!
The sides of the boxes also contains the paintings!
The box is made out of paper-mache. Black lacquer covers the exterior and red lacquer covers the interior of the box. The box stands flat. It is signed with the name of the artist, title, village and year.
