The Russian-New Hampshire Connection

We stumbled upon Mikhail Magaril's work in the window of the Mimi Ferzt Gallery in Soho last Friday. We loved his paintings resembling playful 30's and 40's Russian Coloring Book art--always paired as a line drawing and full color version. Strangely, when uncovering generations of wallpapers from our New Hampshire home this past weekend, we found complimentary wallpapers from the 30's. Conversational and saturated much like Magaril's work, here are some examples of our Russian-New Hampshire connection, where art meets decor:
