A Russian peasant boy playing a cigar box guitar form the centerpiece of this logo for Captain Nemoff Guitars from Moscow, Russia. Mueller portrays his subject with a serious expression, half his face left in the shadows, bottleneck on his left hand. He is surrounded by pompous ornamentation and lettering which contrasts the mood of the portrait and creates ambivalence and interest.
