Master Vladimir Molodkin of Mstera, who painted this piece, has a very distinct style that can immediately be recognized by the minute details and his color usage. The palette incorporates a myriad of bright paints from the cool and warm ends of the spectrum. He uses them in perfect harmony, alternating tones and hues in all the right places. Almost every element of the composition is abundantly detailed with gold paint! Here the artist have used real pieces of susal gold glued on the surface of the casket as the curtains on the top of the lid.
The work is called Remembrance of Summer and mostly showing the scenes from Summer time life. BUT, feauture of this painting is that the artist has combine on two large sides Summer and Winter scenes. AND they are masterfully paint on one surface- Summer scene in the middle and two Winter scenes on the sides!

The box has a hinge above the major scene on a lid and rests on four feet. The artist writes the title and his signature at the edge of the lid.The name of the work is signed over the gold and the name of the artist in blue colors below the floral ornament.
