Famous Fedoskino Master Sergey Chistov( b.1946)has painted this colorful box. His style is one that can be easily recognized and distinguished from all other Fedoskino painters. He is so popular among collectors that the factory is now instructing artists to reproduce his originals. However, when handling a piece painted by Chistov himself one cannot help but get lost in the fantasy filled style, superb technique, and compositional mastery that he has developed over the years!
The box shows the different ways of movement.On the front several people are flying on the balloon in gondola.In the middle we can see one of the first trains.It looks very simple, but it is powered by a real engine! And on the background we can see a couple riding a carriage with horses.
The palette is filled with the tones suitable for reproduction of a summer season.
The scene is framed with a gold line; the box's sides are decorated with two parallel gold lines.
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. A hinge is fastened to the left of the scene, and the box rests on four legs. The work is signed, and dated (2011) by the artist.
