This masterfully painted box is the creation of the famous Palekh artist Nina Bogachova. Bogachova became a Honored Artist of Russia in 2000, her works are exhibited in several Museums in Russia, such as Palekh State Museum, State Museum of Applied and Folk Art (Moscow) and some others. 
The theme of this composition is the world-famous love story "Eugene Onegin" written by the Great Russian poet and writer Alexander Pushkin. The plot of this story is romantic on the one hand, and tragic on the other hand. The man of fashion Eugene Onegin, getting tired with high society and noisy balls, departs to a small village. There he becomes acquainted with two young sisters, Tatyana and Olga, and the young poet Lensky who is the suitor of Olga. Tatyana passionately loves Onegin and makes a declaration of her love, but Onegin doesn't take her feeling seriously and refuses her. Tatyana suffers and can't forget Onegin. Once at a party arranged in honor of Tatiana's name day Onegin flirts with Olga arousing jealousy of her suitor Lensky. In a fit of anger Lenski challenges Onegin to a duel. Onegin kills Lenski and disappears from Tatyana's life, and appears again when Tatyana is the woman of fashion and the wife of a rich general. Now Onegin passionately loves Tatyana and suffers from this love.
Everything here is smoothly applied. The colors glide upon the surface of the box. A variety of oranges, greens and soothing blues dictate the romantic feel of the composition. Gold and aluminum are used with great intricacy and delicacy to develop the finer elements in the scene. Artist Bogachova paints with excellent detail here, combining a great deal into a small space without losing any clarity!
The lid's artistry is framed with flawless golden scroll work. The decoration of the sides is very attractive. The box is made of paper-mache. Black lacquer is used to paint the exterior of the piece while red lacquer completes the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the composition. The box rests flat. The box is signed with the artist's name, village, title and year (2011).
