Genuine vintage soviet USSR russian hand painted palekh lacquer box. The works built on careful study of silhouette shapes, drawing of each element of the landscape.A kind of lighting solutions and shaded fragments even today has not lost its emotional freshness. On this fine romantic miniature, made in grisaille technique, we see a southern landscape, with mountains, hidden haze in the background. The terracotta tone perfectly conveys the atmosphere of a dry, hot summer, characteristic of the mountainous coastal regions of the Crimea and emphasizes the eternal antiquity of these places, the homeland of the Scythians and the proto-Indo-European civilization, where the horse was first domesticated and the language, the ancestor of all European languages arose. In the foreground, a dirt road leading to the mountains as a symbol of the path and constant movement: the movements of peoples, eras, civilizations.
The road is empty and free, there is no traveler on it and only two trees, in the center of the composition, inhabit this desert landscape. One of them bent to the sea, as if adapting to the impacts of the seaside winds coming from the mountains, from the depths of the peninsula. The second, although it is located here, next door, but it is unshakable. Their "relationship" is precisely the semantic center of the whole composition. In general, the work creates a sense of ancient drawing or lithography from the books of travelers of the late eighteenth century, who happened to study and master Crimea after joining it to the territory of the Russian Empire, imbued with romanticism and a thirst for adventure.
Mm (5.90 inch) x 110 mm (4.33 inch) x 45. Please, look at the photos. All photos are real, you receive what you see on them. I do not sell cheap imitations or fake. This is not a decal or decoupage or modern sleaze.
All boxes that I sell is 100% original vintage art of lacquer miniatures. Created during the Soviet era in USSR. For me, the state of the object is very important. Deformations, cracks, loss of the picturesque and varnish layer immediately translate the object into a non-collector's rage. Therefore, I try to represent objects in a collector's state, with minimal scuffs and traces of use.
Basically these are items from my and other private collections that I bought sometime for myself. Another 0.9% is the original, but not collectible, post-Soviet period, from 1991 to today and a very low artistic level, souvenirs for tourists, as if painted by a 6 year old child who is just starting to paint. And only with some sellers, you can meet the original and collectable items of Russian lacquer miniatures, made in the Soviet period, from 1920s to 1980s.Very often, prices for such items are inflated by several times. (excluding week-end and celebration days). Please, see my other auctions with a lot of vintage Russian Soviet art object from USSR era!
