The image of troika (three horses) was extremely popular in lacquer paining. It is widely used in the painting of the 20th century as well as in the modern works with endless modifications – summer troikas, winter troikas, troikas with different characters. But in any way the main image is a team of powerful horses that gallops forwards. The art of Lukutin's and Vishnyakov's lacquer miniature painters has its own peculiarities as it is closely connected with Russian realistic traditions.
