My Dearest Winter! (Зимушка зима). Beautiful egg tempera paintings by talented miniature artists from long ago! Why decorated with mass-produced porcelain plates when you can display these genuine hand painted plates. We have just a handful.
The title for this painting on papier-mache of two powerful troikas in circular motion is "Зимушка зима". Based on a popular folk song for children. "Winter, winter, how nice you are! Rejoice, O Russian soul!" (Зимушка, зимушка, ах как хороша! Радуйся, радуйся, русская душа!). Signed by the artist: Sokolova. Extensive free-hand gold ornamentation around the border and throughout the painting. From the late 1970s. In excellent condition. 9½" in diameter. 1 only, as shown.
A unique gift for Russian lacquer collectors! Display by itself or in a group.
