A popular but always exquisite composition, this can be a highlight of any collection! The work is called "The Russian Bride's Attire" and was painted by Makovskiy in 1884. The composition depicts a moment when the bride is preparing for a wedding ceremony. Her mother and other relatives are making a hairdo. May one more hour and she will not be free... Zolotaya has wonderfully entwined the realism of Makovskiy with the magical beauty of Fedoskino miniature. The wispy veil of the bride has been depicted with transparent paints. Shading and color variation, although not readily noticeable, add tremendous realism to the composition. The artist has taken advantage of the original positioning of each of the characters facing the newlyweds, and has painted each face with extreme life-like detail and expression! The box is constructed from paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the box while red lacquer completes the interior of the work. The box's sides are decorated with an intricate gold ornamentation . The lid is hinged from the top of the composition, and the box rests on the four legs. the box is signed with the artist's name, title and Fedoskino.
