This exquisite Russian lacquered box "Outing Under Moonlight" was done by very talented and famous Fedoskino artist Yuriy Dubovikov, who has passed us away several years ago.
This work reveals the painter's love for nature, earth, and village life. Mighty trees , giant moon with a brilliant light on its smooth surface, tine houses  and fields covered with fresh white snow act together to transmit the sensation of calm and peaceful village life.
Oil-based paint is  used to paint this scene. The colors taken from the palette are very natural and realistic. To supplement the beauty of the painting the artist employs mother-of-pearl and gold dust. The mother-of-pearl strengthens the colors and creates the radiance of the moon through the dark blue sky. Gold dust seems to have been sprinkled in certain parts of the composition to add an almost unnoticeable sparkle to the piece.
The composition is executed scrupulously, with all the details of the landscape faithfully reproduced. 
The sides are decorated with intricate ornaments  painted in gold.
The exterior of the box is painted with black lacquer and the interior with red. The lid is hinged and the box sits flat. The box is signed Fedoskino, the title and his name in oil paints towards the bottom of the composition. The size of the artwork is 7.5" x 5" x 2"
