The masters started creating panels last year.

At the X, jubilee Interregional Creative Festival of Slavic Art “Russian Field” masters of the Fedoskino factory will present a record large panel. All production artists participated in its creation; they began to work on it in 2020, in the year of the 225th anniversary of the craft. It is known that the panel will be made in traditional motives of folk craft.

For more than two centuries Fedoskino miniature has become an integral part of the Russian creative heritage. It is a multi-layer painting with oil paints on a papier-mâché base; it is known not only in Russia, but also abroad.

Craftsmen who develop the craft have made a lot of effort to make their products different from those of other factories. They use a wide range of subjects and have mastered new types of decorating their work. Imitation of mother-of-pearl, painting under a turtle, filigree (a product made of thin twisted wire), painting on relief appeared. Artists use many graphic solutions, including engraving, lithography, splint and others. The subjects are also carefully selected: landscapes, still lifes, scenes from peasant life, illustrations for Russian folk tales and more.

The Fedoskino Factory of Miniature Painting annually participates in the Russian Field festival. The creation of the largest panel in the history of the craft was inspired by the record set by the Zhostovo factory in 2020. Then especially for the festival of the master Zhostov painted “Tsar-tray” measuring more than two meters in length and 1.5 meters in width, weighing 84 kilograms. The record was recorded by representatives of the Russian Book of Records on the day of the festival.

“One of the goals of the festival is to support and popularize the original art crafts for which Russia is so famous. This year one of the main events of the holiday will be the presentation of a record panel painted by Fedoskino masters. I am convinced that it will be a real masterpiece, which will be on a par with the unique “tsar-tray” from Zhostov – the record holder of the last year. It is very pleasant that the “Russian Field” inspires our folk craftsmen to creative exploits to the delight of all admirers of Slavic art ”, – said the head of the capital

Department of National Policy and Interregional Relations Vitaly Suchkov.
