A Portrait Painting By Elena Vladimir Baranoff

"Anastasia" a stunning, double-sided portrait painting was created by master fine artist Elena Vladimir Baranoff during a nine year time period. The breathtaking artwork, painted on a 15 kg (33 lbs) basswood panel, custom designed by the artist, constantly traveled around the world with Elena and the sitter depicted in the portrait, fine artist Anastasia Elena Baranoff, Elena's daughter. 

The egg tempera masterpiece was painted on a marble gesso surface hand prepared by the artist using a special formula. The portrait painting is held by a fine decorative pedestal, hand carved out of pear wood by Russian craftsmen following Elena's most detailed, technical drawings. 

Created in the centuries old technique of egg tempera, incorporating semi-precious ground stones and natural mineral and earth pigments, with fine ornamentation painted  in various types of gold with squirrel hair brushes, "Anastasia" is an extraordinary tour de force. A film granting an insider look at the creation of the portrait is coming this Autumn. Stay tuned.
