Fedoskino Style Painting. Artist: Kotrachko.
"Fedoskino" is the modern name for the Old Russian town of Danilkovo, in the Moscow Oblast, about 20 miles due North from Moscow city. Fedoskino lacquer boxes and lacquer miniatures have been handmade here for over 300 years. Over hundreds of years, the Fedoskino style was perfected here. These lacquer boxes have earned worldwide recognition for their high level of workmanship, detailed painting, realism, and perfection in art of miniature and fine painting. Since each Fedoskino lacquer box is 100% handmade and hand painted, each Fedoskino lacquer box is unique and highly sought after by collectors. The painting is completed with various mixed oil paints and with extreme skill, patience and care. Many of the very fine Fedoskino lacquer boxes often take more than 1 year to complete! Today in Russia, various local art guilds and universities maintain extensive multi-year training programs (4 to 5 years), which pass-on the art of making fine Fedoskino lacquer boxes to a handful of interested Russian artists and artisans. This is a beautiful reproduction of the famous painting "Boyarynya by the window" by the famous Russian artist Konstantin Makovskyi, painted in 1885. The box is one-of-a-kind masterpiece that has a museum quality on its own.
This is a highly collectible item and a very special gift.
