This attractive Palekh box is a creation of Gelisheva Ludmila. Ludmila currently resides in Palekh, as a well-established Palekh artist. The themes of her works are for the most part folklore and genre scenes.
Well-known Palekh Master and a teacher of Palekh Art school Vladimir Vlezko is the artist who painted this scene. Here we see two troykas racing through a field of summer flowers at a blistering pace while a driver encourages the horses.
IMPORTANT NOTE: this box is currently displayed on Expo in the All-Russia Museum of Folk and Applied art in Moscow devoted to the 80th anniversary of Kholui Art. The Expo was opened on the 12th of November and will take a place till the 6th of December 2014.
Well-known artist Boris Kiriyanov of Kholui is a talent behind this interesting dual-sided box. On one of the sides of the box the artist has depicted a panoramic view of town of Suzdal and the other one- a view of the village of Dunilovo, which located not far from Ivanovo and Shuya.
This beautiful box was created by the talented Artist Marie Gurileova from the village of Palekh. Everything is very well organized. There are multiple areas to focus upon, and still the drama is easy to decipher. This is all thanks to the expertise of the artist!
