Strelkina "Lovers on a Stove"
Master Fedoskino painter Nadjeshda Strelkina painted this beautiful oval lacquer box in 2000 using paper-mache', gold and silver powder and lacquer. The box is signed and dated on the bottom front.
Measures 3.5 inches x 2 inches x 1.5 inches
A wonderful lacquer box by master artist Sergey Kozlov, generally considered to be the greatest living artist from Fedoskino.. The use of gold foil and mother of pearl is masterfully executed on this paper-mache casket. It measures 2'5 x 6'5 and is signed by Kozlov and dated 2001 on the bottom. From my personal collection. The play of color over the mother of pearl in the wings of the geese is utterly genius.
