Rare work of art by Nikolaj Zotov. Highly prized by collectors around the world. Zotov's work is best expressed as described by this found article online. Zotov's miniatures are often characterized by a pastel palette painted on a pale background, and enhanced by dramatic mother-of-pearl inlays. His works frequently have a sculptural component to them: they are not merely standard shapes, but frequently have carved-out "windows", graceful and organic pillar-like features, sinuous edges that evoke waves or clam-shells, and three-dimensional carvings.
Krestovskaya has noted the innovative nature of Zotov's miniatures, and describes how his works beckon to be touched and handled; there is something alive lurking in their prominent flowing shapes, rounded corners, shafts at the base and refined ball-shaped legs. " Works such as Zotov's are treated "not merely as pieces of miniature painting but above all as genuine works of art in which shape, color scheme and decor are on an even par with painting. They are complete artistic creations. It can be no surprise that his original and unforgettable pieces are highly prized by discerning collectors around the world.
