[2006-09-26] The russian folk art: Fedoskino
ying on a sofa in a grey house suit, nestled in German pillows.... he used to fiddle with some small object, his old black snuffbox, its lacquer gone tarnished...." That was how Russkie Vedomosti (The Russian Gazette) described russian writer Ivan Turgenev in 1884. History has, surprisingly, preserved for us Turgenev's favorite plaything. When leaving, for the last time, Russia for Paris, where he was not allowed to smoke or snuff tobacco, Turgenev left his snuffbox as a souvenir with his friend, writer Yakov Polonsky. The Polonsky family carefully stored that relic, which was [...]

he art of Palekh is a part of the world culture. Lacquer miniature which appeared in the beginning of the 20th century oil the basis of old Russian painting brought Palekh a world fame. Before that for 3 centuries Palekh was known in Russia as one of the great centers of icon-painting. After the revolution of 1917, because of persecution religion, former painters started to look for new jobs where they could use their experience. The decision was found thanks to a unique talent of Ivan Golikov and a talent for organisation of his brother-in-law A. Glazunov. Using experience of [...]

here are four traditional centres of miniature lacquered box painting in Russia, which today have become the most famous. They are Fedoskino, Palekh, Mstera and Kholui.

Mstera holds a special place in this group, due to its more ancient and maybe more colourful traditions. A special place in the Mstera icon painting tradition was held by Byzantine art, the successors of which were first and foremost the Vladimir and Suzdal icon painters.The Byz [...]

[2006-09-26] The russian folk art:
zhel, not far from the city of Moscow, has long been famous for its rich deposits of clays suitable for the making of pottery, and, hence, for the ceramic industries that grew up around them.

Kievan Rus was converted to Christianity in 988, and in Kiev, its dominant political and cultural centre, mosaics, which date from about 1045, were the work of Byzantine craftsmen.
