Serotetskov V. A., a famous Fedoskino artist, also known as a gifted Russian landscape painter has designed and then hand-painted this gorgeous lacquer box called “Winter House”.
The artist was surely inspired by the charming beauty of Russian winter. The lacquer box realistically represents Russian countryside – small wooden Russian houses, called by Russian people as “hatas” among snow-covered trees. On the foreground the frozen rivulet is depicted, benches of which are covered with sleepy trees and a thin growth of bushes. Taking a closer look at the lacquer box, you can distinguish a form of a countryman drawing water from a well. Even the tiniest accents are expertly detailed.
Blue and gray oil tones of Fedoskino lacquer box palette render the atmosphere of dullness of coming evening.
The landscape drawn on the lacquer box is not exaggerated with unrealistic details. The scene of the lacquer box is not framed with any ornament or patterns. That was made to achieve an effect of naturalness and reality. The lacquer box is tasteful in its simplicity, and elegant in its originality.
The lacquer box is constructed from high-quality paper-mache. The box rests on four little legs. The lacquer box's bottom is lacquered with black color, while the interior – with red one, traditionally to Fedoskino style. The box is signed on the lid's interior with artist’s name, village of origin, and year of creation.
