Russian Antique Decorative Arts and Jewelry

The most noted Russian jeweler from the late 19th century to 1917, the year of the Revolution, was Carl Fabergé. He produced some of the world’s finest enamel work, featured on many different types of items, ranging from clocks to frames to jewelry.  Works of art included sculpture such as hardstone flower studies and miniature animals, and household items such as bellpushes, often made for the Tsar and other wealthy Russian families. Original Fabergé works of art have become some of the most coveted antique items on the market.  (More to come.)

Antique Russian Ink Landscape by Shishkin

0

Ivan Shishkin (1832-1898).
Landscape with a Hunter.
Signed lower right in Cyrillic and dated 1867.
Pen on paper.
Image: 13 3/4 in. x 20 3/8 in.
Paper: 14 1/2 in. x 21 1/8 in.
Framed: 23 1/4 in. x 29 3/4 in.

The location is Valaam Island in Lake Ladoga, a popular source of inspiration for Shishkin. Although this work closely relates to an oil painting of the same year in the Russian Museum, Shishkin deemed drawing an art independent from painting. He was an excellent draftsman, and much more involved with drawing than other landscapists. The present work exemplifies his special skill with pen, and typifies his dense style on a large scale, often confused with etching.

Admired as one of Russia’s greatest landscape painters, Shishkin was a founding member of the Wanderers. Born in a provincial town into a merchant family, he studied at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in the early 1850s, followed by the Academy in St. Petersburg, where he later taught. The forests and fields of Russia, its people and peasants, appealed to Shishkin and the Wanderers, and they saw landscape painting as both critical to genre, and as narrative itself.
