Victoria Kostenko created “Still Life with a Dymkovo Toy” in 1967.
The title “Still life with a Dymkovo toy” Materials: Canvas, Oil Paint
Dimensions: 60 cm x 63 cm (23 1/2 “x 24 3/4”)
The painting was signed by the artist in the lower right corner and on the reverse side on a stretcher.
Before us is a canvas depicting clay toys, hand-painted Dymkovo toys, garden fruits and flowers in a vase. Dymkovo toys are one of the Russian folk clay crafts. It arose in the district settlement of Dymkovo, near the city of Vyatka (now in the territory of the city of Kirov). The Dymkovo toy is a handmade product. Each toy is the creation of one master. Making toys from modeling to painting is a creative process that never repeats. No, and cannot be two absolutely identical products.
Still life is made in a light airy manner and conveys the warmth of colors. The image is fabulous, tender, it is saturated with the aroma of flowers and fruits.
On the left, on canvas, a large ceramic vase, hand-painted, is realistically depicted. You can see it in my store, in the department of Artistic Ceramics. In a heavy clay vase, the stems of garden flowers gracefully curved. In front of the vase is a plate with large ripe apples and branches with red berries. The picture seems to radiate the warmth of a beautiful summer sunny day.
