One of Russia's most famous paintings is A Boyar Wedding Feast by Konstantin Makovsky (1839-1915). Boyars were members of Old Russia's aristocracy and were next in rank to the ruling princes. They wielded great power and authority in Kievan Rus' and Muscovy and this painting, originally completed in 1883, depicts them at the height of their influence. A toast has been proposed and the bride and groom are about to seal their marriage in response to the clamor from the boyars about them. The goal is to sweeten the wine being consumed from silver chalices. The guests wear richly embroidered garments, the bride and several women wear traditional pearl-studded kokoshniki (crown).

This magnificent replica is skillfully hand painted in Russia and mounted within a handsome frame. About 23" x 15".  1 only. Free Shipping! (US only)
