Product Overview

This unusual work was painted by a talented and well-known Fedoskino artist Pavel Anokhin. It is painted in the style which is unusual for Fedoskino School of miniature painting. To a great extent it is close to the style of surrealism. In painting and sculpture surrealism is one of the leading influences of the 20th century. In this century it also admired, and included in its exhibitions, works by the Italian Giorgio de Chirico, the Russian Marc Chagall, the Swiss Paul Klee, the French artists Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia, and the Spaniard Pablo Picasso. Surrealist painting exhibits great variety of content and technique. That of Salvador Dali, for example, consists of more or less a direct and photographic transcription of dreams.

The work is entitled "A Young Hunter", and depicts a young man hunting for a lion. The scene is framed with a silver band.


The box is made out of paper-mache. White lacquer covers the exterior and light cream lacquer covers the interior of the box. The lid is hinged from the top of the scene, and the box rests on four rounded metal legs. The work is signed with the artist's name.
