Russian Lacquered Papier-Mâché Boxes: 200years of hand-painted Miniature Art


Russian Lacquered Papier-Mache Boxes: 200 Years of Hand-Painted Miniature Art brings your eyes to a visual journey of the Russian lacquer miniatures.  This book is mainly divided into two sections, the Antique and Contemporary Collections, in full color illustrations.  The former one presents the daily life of the farmers during the time of Napoleon’s invasion and the Patriotic War in 1812.  The latter one demonstrates the changes of their life in terms of the political and social aspects after the Russian Revolution of 1917.   This rich photo album with over 400 boxes and artwork also demonstrates the shifting of painting style and techniques.  Nevertheless, this collection will surely be an enjoyment for those are interested in art, beauty and history.
