Borok, The Shenkur county, The Arkhangelsk Province. 1890

The craftsman from the Amosovs family.

Borok’s painting differs from other northern paintings by its more sonorous colours, especially at the end of the 19th century, when gold leafs were used as the background, and light background acquired a special whiteness. Cinnabar branches and red horses, hitting their hooves in the patterned frames surrounding the scenes of festive skating, blazed in the background.
