Rostov Finift Russian Enamel Painting
It is the radiance, brilliance, and unfading colours that attract to finift: the painted designs shine in the milk-white enamel surface as if oozing from its depth. Painting on enamel, being a very complicated decorative art, has always been esteemed on a par with precious stones.
Palekh Miniature
One can hardly believe that these fairytale-like paintings on lacquered black caskets, which seem to be popular exemplars of something old-Russian, in some way owe their appearance to the notorious revolution of 1917. Let alone the centuries-long icon-painting tradition of Palekh masters, of course.
