This Russian 19th Century oil on canvas transports us to a quaint snowy village in Russia. The scene unfolds outside a charming cottage, where a family has gathered after a successful reindeer hunt. The canvas captures the essence of familial warmth and the celebration of this hunt.
In the foreground, a lady gracefully presents a glass of warming liquor to one of the hunters, a gesture of appreciation for the successful expedition.
The younger members of the family stand nearby, their faces filled with a mixture of curiosity and surprise at the sight of the hunted prey, an emblem of survival and sustenance.
The piece is protected by a handcarved giltwood frame, having floral/botanical motifs.
