vintage original art from Palekh, Russia

by Peligraphics

vintage miniature lacqured painting in a modern style from the famous Russian town of Palekh (Pa'len'kay) 300 kilometers from Moscow. there are several hundred skilled artists there, who are trained in classical art, having done churches, icons and gold gilt frescos. it was only after the revolution that this new art, miniature lacquered paintings and boxes, the size of a business card became world famous and costly. these miniature lacquered paintings of Russian fairy tales and historical events are the mainstay of this village. handed down from generation to generation. this artist, a beautiful young Palekh woman named Gunshat, signed her work (photo#3). a most unusual personal painting. she even made the frame by hand. her training in the classical miniature technique that Palekh artist work years to perfect, is expressed here with this unusually individual Russian scene. Palekh miniatures are purchased around the world at high prices. this artist, Gunshat, had a passion to go outside her traditional training and create a modern pastoral local scene and sold it and inscribed it to me when we met..
