This very nice Russian lacquer box "Alice" is painted by well-known artist Krasnov. Krasnov is a Palekh artist. It is rare that an artist has such a good blend of skill, talent, and technical knowledge, which he excels at with every work he paints. Here the artist has drawn various characters from Lewis Carroll's classic tale “Alice in Wonderland”.Krasnov is able to tightly compose the characters to give the scene maximum efficiency without looking crowded or bunched up. He works in details with gold and aluminum paint that are fine and make the scene radiate with a warm glow. These lines are so thin that they give the characters and their surroundings the life-like clarity within this stylized world. 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 top of the scene. The work is signed with the artist's name, Palekh, The size of the box is5" x 3.75" x 1.5". Excellent collector's piece!
