The centres of lacquered miniature have remained faithful to fairy-tales, legends, myths and sublime poetry as the central point of their creative work. Russian literary writings, especially Alexander Pushkin’s poems, provide continuous source of diverse and talented interpretations.
Talented artist Evgeniy Vlasov took «The tale of Tsar Saltan» as the main subject of his art work. The story tells us about marriage of Saltan and the birth of his son Gvidon, who gets on an uninhabited island, meets the magical Swan Princess and becomes, with her help, a powerful ruler.
The miniature is very detailed, which tells as about the great professionalism and long artist’s work. Almost over the entire surface, the artist depicted plots and episodes from a famous fairy tale. The work was done with tempera, with the addition of gold leaf and metal powders.
