The art of Khokhl.oma (hoh-lo-MA)
originated in the 17th century in the Volga-river region. It is
one of the most famous Russian folk arts.
Khokhloma painting amazes
you with its delicate floral pattern and festive coloring, which
is based on combination of scarlet cinnabar and glittering gold
against the black lacquer background.
In the 20s and 30s of the
19th century Khokhloma craftsmen made some innovations. They started
to gild not only parts but the whole surface and covered their
bowls and cups with intricate grass painting. These improvements
brought big success of this folk craft.
