Title: Favorite Anastasia Pictures
Post by: Shvibzik on March 31, 2005, 05:19:14 PM
  I was looking through Alexei's threads and came across the "Favorite Picture" thread.  I checked through these threads and (unless I overlooked something) there wasn't one for Anastasia, so I thought it may be a good idea.  So, please post your favorite Anastasia pictures here. ;D
 Here's one of mine that I just recently found, I have many more, but that will require me to go searching through the My Pictures file. :P

For once and for all, Ana, Anna and Ania are not abbreviations or nicknames for Anastasia. They are completely different names. Anna comes from the Hebrew name "Hannah". St Anna (or Ania in Russian) was the mother of the Virgin Mary. Anastasia is the feminine form of the Greek word (also name) Anastasius which means Resurrection. (The male form in Russian being Anastasy). The usual 'nickname' for Anastasia is Nastia, and there are of course many variations thereof, but not Ana.

Although I love the pictures, PLEASE post links instead.  Some of the pictures posted are medium size, but even for a person that has been used to high speed and now am using dial up, it takes FOREVER to load these pages (and sometimes even if you have high speed).  If you want to use them for coloring, have someone PM them to you, instead of posting them GIAGANTICLY.  And even in the links, if you can help it any, please reduce the sizes.  And if you don't know how, you can ask.

And - as if I don't sound picky enought already - if you have colored photo's, try to find out who the illustrator is.  I know I've posted some before without recognizing the colorer, and I see that I should have.  And one last thing: please, if the photo has already been posted, don't post it again.  I don't know if anyone has done that, but just a reminder. ;)

It's already been said once, and it's been said again.

Thanks.

Clock, thank you very much for your last posting. Very interesting and rare picture. I would like to know where and when was this taken? Is that 1914? Or could that been Eupatoria 1916? I am looking for any picture of the visit of the Imperial Family at the dacha of the head of Eupatoria (forgot his name).

Here's the site:

I know I inquired about the price a while ago -- if I'm remembering right, it was $700 or so...

This is my particular favorite. Unfortunately I don't have $1200 to spare!

Yes, that's Irina.

The picture in #84 was taken on the Standart; I'd assume at some dining room, as that's what it looks like.

Anastasia "received" this regiment for her 14th birthday, in 1915 (see the Tsar's diary). I remember also a phrase of the Impresse'letters to the Tsar, from 1916. She wrote that the Anastasia Nikolaevna's train came with a lot of wounders. Mother and daughter came to see them, and Anastasia found some of "her" officers.
How could we explain that there is no known pictures, is that the war?

The first photo was taken in 1911, when Anastasia would have been 10 or 9, depending on the time of year. The second photo was taken in 1910, so Anastasia would have been 9 or 8.

Anastasia made a very cute toddler, didn't she?
Title: Re: Favorite Anastasia Pictures
Post by: RealAnastasia on November 11, 2009, 10:14:08 PM
I know I am repeating myself, but I think that Anastasia was the cutest thing of the world until she had 10 years old or so on. Later she become rather plain (I'm speaking about her physic, not her intelligence, sensibility or god heart). But people who knew her said she could have been a very beatiful young woman. For her elder sisters, it was quite the opposite: Olga and Tatiana were not specially cute (Olga maybe a little...In the chubby side  ;D) when toddlers or girls, but when they blossomed as young women, they were really stunning beauties.

But I put Maria aside her sisters in this: she was a sweet beatiful girl when toddler and a s a young woman. She was always a beauty. Well...this is only my opinion. We may be years and years discussing whom of OTMA were beauties and whom not or whom of them was the most beatiful sister. I know...This is plain nonsense and frivolity...But I LIKE nonsense and frivolity just time to time!  ::) :D

I totally agree with you. If she had lived longer, perhaps she had become very beautiful as her older sisters. Who was the person that    
 said that Anastasia could have become the most beautiful OTMA sister?

I have read it too, it could be one of tutors, or even cousin. I can't recall the original source, but you are right, someone indeed have said that.

I know I am repeating myself, but I think that Anastasia was the cutest thing of the world until she had 10 years old or so on. Later she become rather plain (I'm speaking about her physic, not her intelligence, sensibility or god heart). But people who knew her said she could have been a very beatiful young woman. For her elder sisters, it was quite the opposite: Olga and Tatiana were not specially cute (Olga maybe a little...In the chubby side  ;D) when toddlers or girls, but when they blossomed as young women, they were really stunning beauties.

I have to disagree with you here. Of course, beauty is completely subjective, but I agree with others when they say Anastasia had something special and different about her. She had very irregular features that made her stand out and that's what made others see a promise of beauty in her future. Maria was always good looking but her beauty wasn't different or special; it was the typical standards of beauty. But, as you said, there wasn't a most beautiful sister. You can't argue something like that.

Yes! Anastasia stand for herself appart of her sisters. She was VERY special. Be sure of it. But I was speaking about what we calls "classical beauty". Besides, niot being a real beauty is NOT a sin!

I agree with you. Just because a person does not have the classic pattern of beauty does not mean that she is ugly. Tatiana stood out for having a very exotic beauty, and Anastasia, for also having been a "diferent beauty" was very special :)

Beautiful Anastasia-

I was trying to think of what my favorite picture of her was....now I remember, in the top photo you posted, there is an individual picture of Anastasia in the same photo shoot. She was probably 9 years old, and was reclining on a couch or chair, with that same pearl necklace and white dress with the rosette trim.
Title: Re: Favorite Anastasia Pictures
Post by: rosieposie on March 07, 2010, 05:52:42 PM
My favourite would have to be the one where the family is on the Standart and Anastasia pulls that sulky face.  It's a classic.

14 or 15.

Post by: Holly on March 18, 2010, 03:13:54 PM
I believe that photograph was taken in 1915, making her 13 or 14. Based on her clothing it was probably later in 1915, so most likely 14 years old.

My guess is the summer of 1910. Nicholas's armband suggests that he's mourning for King Edward.

GDIzabella, what an amazing idea that the last one was taken prior/after 1914 formals! And really, the dresses match! And that is the proof that those photos were taken in the Alexander Palace in early spring of 1914! How did you find it out? Was it labeled somewhere, it could be that I missed it.

She has more than one, IMHO. I'm sure her site is Romanov sisters (which is wonderful - in english) but moreover i'm pretty sure i arrived into the site Izabelle talks about by a Ally's page somewhere. Moreover, the site is in Czech, which is her language, so... but now i'm having some doubts, lol!!
