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.
