In St. Louis we were lucky enough to have a Russian Imperial Artifacts exhibit several years ago at our history museum.

One of the things that stood out in my mind was the dress of Marie Feodorvna, that she wore upon arriving in Russia or at a dinner that evening.   It was lavender
velvet, with silver, and white satin, of course in the court style, but she was so TINY..

She was diminiutive in height and weight.  I wish I had a photo of the dress.  Both Minny & Aix were known for their style and their ability to wear clothes.

Looking at these pictures, I see that the old photos don't do these gowns justice. When you think they are dressed in a simple manner, you realize they are really dressed up!
I didn't know a skirt could come with an afternoon and evening top! Thanks for the info

I think taht the empressīs portrait in formal drees may be reeddish, because the blue that you can see in Liljones picture dess is like it had been colorized over (I have  a little experience in that, you can see that dressīs frontal part must be white/silver or gold  but the colour is like a light uniform blue. The colour blue is too much uniform in the dressīembroidered part too). And because I allways see that portarit in red colour in different places. :-/

How come Tuxen's painting only included Misha and not the rest of the children of MF and Alexander? Is it because Misha is their only favorite child? I mean if there's going to be a family portrait, why not include the rest of the children? Any inputs are appreciated. Thank you.
I think it was a "sketch" for the Danish familly portrait made by Tyxen...Christian IX and Queen Louise with their family in a garden pavilion of the Fredensborg Palace in 1883

Post by: grandduchessella on April 22, 2007, 03:17:59 PM
Alexandra had a smaller-scale version painted as well as a segment of her, Bertie and Eddy (exactly as they are in the full version). It seems that most of the children and Louise & Christian had their sections done as separate pictures as well as the group. L&C's section is at Frederiksborg, I believe, as are many of the other small group portraits.

Tuxen did the preliminary sketches when the group was gathered in Denmark for Queen Louise's birthday as well as the background and composition. There's a copy of a preliminary portrait--minus Nicholas, George V and the future Christian X--from the background and Alexandra of Greece isn't next to Queen Olga. The figure of Misha is also slightly different. Misha is actually different in all 3 incarnations--the sketch, Queen Alexandra's copy and the finished picture. There were some additional changes to QA's version and the dog beside the Tsar is omitted and more of the ceiling (of the Garden Room) was shown. Her version was at Marlborough House, then Buckingham Palace and then returned to Marlborough House when she was widowed.

There were several photos of various family members (individually and in small groups) that were used to supplement the sketches that Tuxen did. Several of the photos were later published in magazines and in postcard/cabinet card form. The figures of Louise & Christian in the portrait are almost identical to the photos. Tuxen also travelled back to Denmark when the Greek royals were visiting and to Russia where AIII sat for him (and where one of his aides put on his uniform and took his place for some time). The segment he did here of MF, AIII and Misha was done at Gatchina in 1884. He also went to Gmunden in the fall to do the Cumberlands and then onto England to do the Waleses.

QV was impressed enough to ask Tuxen to do Beatrice's wedding (which he declined) and then later her own family gathering.

In June 1873 Marie Feodorova and her husband visited london as a guest of her sister the princess of Wales. I have a painting by the artist william salter(waterloo banquet) which looks like Marie but has a lable on the back describing the sitter as Alexandra Feodorovna-empress of Russia.The sitter is clearly not Alexandra Feodorovna but could it be Marie.
Does anybody know whether Marie sat for a portrait by Salter during her london visit in june 1873???

Hi Melvin,

1873:
You are right that it could not be Empress Alexandra Feodorovna as she was not Empress then and was only about 1 year old at the time.
It would be interesting if someone could post this picture as there are many experts on this Forum, who could identify it for you.

Post by: melvin on June 09, 2008, 08:21:49 AM
Its good to get a bit of feedback. Just to tell you everything i know about this painting. I was painted by william salter who died in 1875,There is an old label on the back describing the sitter as "Alexandra Feodorovna-empress of Russia." I think this is idefinately wrong,but it is odd to describe anyone as such without there being some connection??
He was reasonably famous and a Royal academician.
The painting is signed on the front. w salter 187?. This would tie in with Maries trip to london for 3 months from june 1873 when she visited her sister and stayed at Marlborough house.
I can find no record of her sitting for salter but he may have painted  a poor image from a newspaper???
With Maries interest in art it is possible she sat for a portrait???
Victorian artists may  have produced a slightly "romanticised "image of their sitters??
I think the gold cross jewellry is slightly odd for an English victorian lady..does that mean anything to anyone???
It may well not be her, but i have had replies from a few "experts" who think it is .....
Thank you for any more thoughts.

Question concerning the "Salter"painting:  Is the painting that the gentleman posting here owns, the VERY SAME (original) painting, shown as ID 101985, or is this gentleman's painting an EXACTING oil copy, perhaps with some age?  The price isn't shown or marked "sold", if after the fact, in the Country House Protraits' brief reference.  And what is "POA" (price on asking?)?  Is there any known provenance from Country House Portraits? That should be helpful. I am assuming that the oils the business offers ARE originals (as reflected in the asking price!).  AP.
Title: Re: Marie Feodorovna--portraits & paintings
Post by: gogm on June 12, 2008, 05:03:57 PM
I gather then that Salter did not paint Maria Feodorovna, at least not this time.
Title: Re: Marie Feodorovna--portraits & paintings
Post by: melvin on July 21, 2008, 05:37:43 AM
Hi. As clarification this painting is the SAME as on the country house portraits website. That is my site and essentially i buy and sell British portraits.i bought this from a small auction house in sussex as i was intrigued by the label on the back.I have no knowledge of the Russian royal family hence posting on this site.It certainly is an original work by salter,but clearly there is some dispute as to who the sitter may be!.The sitter has brown eyes,does this tie in with Marie??  thx

Oh, since this topic is completely dedicated to portraits/paintings of Marie Feodorovna, I want to add some information about the portrait in the reply #85 - it's a work of Vladimir Makovsky, the year is 1885, If I'm not wrong it was made inside of the Gatchina Palace.

I picked up a copy of "Moscow - splendours of the Romanov's" and was rather startled to find myself looking at a watercolour on page 122 of "the red salon with portraits of Emperor Alexander III & Empress Marie Feodorovna" dated 1902 by A P Barychnikov in the state historical museum of Moscow. The portrait of Marie Feodorovna in this watercolour is definatley this work above so it's obviously a pair with her husband...now if we can just find out if it still exists.....

Yeah. It looks pretty new for me. I think that they've created it by PC. I know a guy who does exactly the same with Marie-Antoinette. The "new" paintings looks absolutely gorgeous, but you realizes they are not painted at Marie-Antoinette's era on the spot. This is the case with this new Minnie painting.

Hi everyone!
Just want to share with you some rare portraits of HM Maria Fedorovna, which I have in my collection of images.
The first one is by N.G.Shilder (1887):

h, yes. She was a beatiful woman and knew how to wear a nice dress. She was very stylish, very regal, a gift for the eyes.

It turns out that Marie Feodrovna was also a talented artist.  I thought this link might interest some people. I'd love to see more of her work. Also on the wish list is some of Ella's paintings. So many royal ladies in the 19th century painted, but you rarely see examples of their output.

Yes. Although the Empress can select pieces to wear. If you look at the photos or paintings of Alicky & Minny. Minny tend to wear more jewels than Alicky. Perhaps the younger woman felt the burden of wearing so many plus the heavy robes.

The print (that I have) is when Dagmar & her family visited England, they were dressed alike. It was commented on in the ILN.

The portrait I think was based on a photo, since she had the same jewels.

I think that priest in the painting (I am wrong, his rank is higher than just a priest) is John from Kronstadt who was presented at AIII's death at Livadia in October of 1894, and who later healed both Anna Vyrubova and Zenaida Yussupova.

As an author I should think that you'd be more mindful of your legacy.... keep in mind that all of the posts will be archived at The United States Library of Congress and will be examined in detail by historians in generations to come. Think of the shock that will be felt by those who do a search expecting to find carefully thought-out and correctly spelled "meaningful responses" by Author Eric Lowe... they'll no doubt be ROTFL (and I wish I could be there to witness it the first time it happens)!!

If we get more informative posts from you the discussion will be FAR MORE interesting.

I don't want to begin moderating your posts,I've been deleting enough rubbish and fluff during the clean-up of the Forums.

1894 - Empress Marie Feodrovna by Francois Flameng.

(http://inlinethumb01.webshots.com/28160/2061327950102753164S600x600Q85.jpg) (http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2061327950102753164yuCkSV)

This scan above is taken from an original 1913 lithograph of the painting (large size)

(http://inlinethumb19.webshots.com/13586/2236663200102753164S600x600Q85.jpg) (http://entertainment.webshots.com/photo/2236663200102753164nxkDTb)

This scan is of the original painting, but it looks like the image was chopped down for the book.  It's interesting to compare the accuracy of the lithograph against the original work. I thought people here might enjoy seeing good versions of this painting.

and a large version of this image of Marie in her court dress...I'd love to see the original of this work. I know these engravings were done for 1883 magazines, which makes me think this must have been painted right after she came to the throne.

Marie wearing the same jewels as in the painting above.

Marie Feodorovna's Necklace and matching tiara. The necklace is worn in these paintings.

I think they were sold in the 1920s.  These images come from the Fersman catalogue, but the pieces themselves are not listed as sold in the list Twining's book provides. Mind you, he notes that quite a few pieces were either badly described in the 1927 sale list and can't be linked back to existing images of jewels or were sold subseqently in private sales that are unrecorded. I suspect these went in a private sale and are either now broken up or languishing in some private princely collection.

Eric, DO  a prompt list of Royal nicknames and learn them by heart. It's annoying to read every time your mistakes. MaVra, not Marva. And once I told you that nickname of Elizaveta Mavrikievna was not flattering, none called her Mavra into her face, and you have no right to name her so, it's disrespectful.

She was called that in quite a lot of books including those published by well known authors as Charlotte Zeepvat and John Wimbles. Nobody wrote back to complain that it was disrespectful.

If you tend to shelter yourself behind those respectable people authority, at least learn how to write correctly Royal nicknames.

Early photographic processes were unsuitable for mass reproduction so newspapers and magazines had to rely on line engravings which would reproduce to a reasonable standard until almost the end of the 19th century.

Yes, you see an awful lot of engravings that came from photos. They are usually easily able to be picked up because of the accuracy of the image and in comparison to exisiting photos. I sometimes see engravings and wonder when the original photo will turn up on the board. One image I've been hoping will appear for years is the wedding photo of Grand Duchess Elizabeth and Grand Duke Sergei. The engraving for the wedding pair is so accurate in portraiture etc that I'm sure it was done of a photograph.

You did it again. MAVRA. Not MaRva. Is it so difficult to remember?  Probably you don't care what you type - for typing's sake - but other DO care what they type and what they say at our Forums. Your mistakes can direct ignorant posters to the wrong way.
And one thing always amazes me - you do try hard to show us you are a historian and a researcher but with most of your typing mistakes,speculating without giving sources and and millions of pointless posts...historians  don't look like that, IMO.

Sorry about the typing error. Do anyone know why Ella does not have a wedding photo ? Minny did have a painting about her marriage.

Sorry about the typing error. Do anyone know why Ella does not have a wedding photo ? Minny did have a painting about her marriage.

as far as I'm aware none has been seen of Ella...but this is not really the area to discuss this further. It was just speculation on my part, and maybe wishful thinking.  I've seen a lot of engravings for Dagmar's wedding but I don't think I've seen a full formal painting like the one that was done for Nicholas and Alexandra. The engravings I've seen are usually large scale ones of processions and banquets etc that don't look they have been worked up from photos  Photos for any of the Imperial weddings are scarce, especially with the bride & bridegroom dressed in their wedding clothes.

I think this is one of a series of official scenes of the coronation in 1883 that was reproduced in the imperial souvenir book of the coronation for the imperial family. (these books are rare and were only produced in small numbers after each coronation) There is one of them in the NY public library, where most of these pictures come from. You can order copies of the pictures, but they aren't that cheap...especially for international orders. Here's a couple more from the book.

Post by: katmaxoz on September 14, 2010, 02:05:32 AM
I wonder if anyone here has ever seen a good copy of this picture?  It was painted by Franz Xavier Winterhalter  -- the details are below:

Grand Duchess Maria Feodorovna of Russia (1847-1928, later Empress of Russia) & her sister, Alexandra, The Princess of Wales (1844-1925, later Queen of Great Britain), née Princesses of Denmark, 1868, Paris
Watercolour over pencil, 29 x 21.5 cm
Signed and dated, bottom left: Fr Winterhalter / 1868,
Private Collection

(http://i54.tinypic.com/282wz8.jpg)

I found it at http://www.bvram.com/WH/WH.html which has turned out to be a pretty stunning resource for Winterhalter.

Mr Reisberg's online catalogue clearly shows that the "Winterhalter and the courts of europe" exhibition only showed a fraction of Winterhalter's work.  It's not surprising that this painting has not seen the light of day in a major exhibition when you see all the other ones in the catalogue that also have never been seen. We are just lucky that there is this little image that will enable use to ID it if we find it unlabelled elsewhere.

I think that they were all tought to paint when younger - by well known artists from what I have read - It was a skill expected of young, aristocratic ladies in the period.  However only Ella and Empress Marie and Olga Alexandrovna seem to have carried on lessons into adulthood. You sometimes see paintings they have done and they are very good and a credit to their teachers.  I'm sure I've seen some pictures of paintings done by Alexandra on postcards  in watercolour for friends in the early years of her marriage and they were very good paintings, but I don't recall ever seeing an oil painting by her....but she did do embroidery and sold it for charity at various events.

Yes. Almost all Princesses were taught how to paint...but very few of them painted as talented artist. Olga Alexandrovna and her mother Minnie, really impressed me by their artistic works.

I've read that Queen Marie Leczkynska of France was "taught" to paint this way: a famous artists made a draw for her and showed the Queen what kind of colours the painting was supposed to have...The results were so awful that no ne wanted to hang Marie's paintings on their walls...not even the best of her friends. The Queen was ofended by the fact. But even if she was taught "how to", she couldn't become an artist. Technics and lessons are imprtant for art, but if you are not an artist they will not help you to achieve a good painting.

Yes, I agree. A very generic "pretty" Marie that doesn't look terribly like her, but it's one of the better depictions of her coronation dress I've seen in print.

Title: Re: Marie Feodorovna--portraits & paintings
Post by: Russian Art Lover on August 09, 2011, 02:29:17 PM
I think that they were all tought to paint when younger - by well known artists from what I have read - It was a skill expected of young, aristocratic ladies in the period.  However only Ella and Empress Marie and Olga Alexandrovna seem to have carried on lessons into adulthood. You sometimes see paintings they have done and they are very good and a credit to their teachers.

When Marie came to Russia in 1866, one of the leading Russian artists of that time, Alexei Bogolyubov, was invited to become her private tutor. A master of battle scenes and seascapes, Bogolyubov made an important contribution to the development of Impressionism and plein-air painting in Russia. But he did not teach Marie Feodorovna painting, perspective or plein-air in the same way that he taught these disciplines at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St Petersburg in the 1860s (or, later, in Paris in the early 1870s). He simply curated the grand duchess's independent drawing and painting activities, confining his instructions to friendly words and advice. Such guidance and hints were also given by Bogolyubov to Alexander III, who similarly enjoyed drawing and painting. Marie was an accomplished artist in her own right before she came to Russia.

Works by Marie are scattered over a few museums in Russia. The Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Karelia owns two small still-lifes (1868, 1869, one is reproduced below from page 19 of this thread) and one watercolour of a miser (1890), which were all shown at the Princess Dagmar - Empress Marie Feodorovna exhibition, which opened in the Royal Silver Room of Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen in September 1997.

These works were acquired by the Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Karelia in 1960. Before then, they had belonged to the Karelian Museum of Local Studies. Their provenance can be traced back to the Leningrad State Museum Fund, to whom they belonged until 1928. The State Museum Fund acquired them from the Anichkov Palace after the revolution.

Interestingly, in the inventories of the Karelian Museum of Local Studies dating from the 1930s, the stretchers of the two still-lifes are described as having labels inscribed "City Museum. Historical Premises of the Anichkov Palace." This suggests that they were good enough to have been exhibited in the 1920s at the Leningrad City Museum.

Several other works by the empress have since come to light. Portrait of Grigory the Coachman (1870) was discovered in the collection of the State Russian Museum in St Petersburg. Some fifty drawings and watercolours dating from the late 1850s and early 1860s belong to the State Archive of the Russian Federation in Moscow.

Close up of a coronation drawing, Empress Marie Feodorovna embraces Nicholas II, Empress Alexandra is behind them. I wonder if that scene means something, I remember one similar drawing about the coronation of AII, his mother Alexandra Feodorovna is embracing he in the same way. I even thought that was the same portrait!

I think it might have been done mostly from photos, but its one of the few formal paintings of her in full court dress you can find. At least one other one was painted in the 1880s but I've never seen the painted version, only prints.

http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/be/05/e6/be05e62cfadaa7783a5e0e0d42ffad5d.jpg

though having said that you can see the painted version on the wall in a painting done of the red salon in the winter palace (look at page 122 of "moscow, splendors of the romanovs".)

I recently bought a copy of the 19th May 1883 Issue of the French magazine l'Illustration. It has a lovely etching of Empress Marie Feodorovna in her coronation dress on the cover - a rather scarce illustration that I've only ever seen in one other magazine of the period The Queen, the lady's newspaper.  However what interested me about this particular etching was the information underneath the picture where it states that the engraving was after a photo by M. Bergamsco of St Petersburg.

This leads me to believe that the often stated fact that no photos of MF and Alexander were taken in their coronation robes may be incorrect.  I have always been puzzled by the sheer amount of detail the etcher has given the dress in this engraving - and one other one I think is sourced from the same photo session shown here - and this may answer the question as to why the dress seems so accurate in these images where often the results are very vague in these engravings. I think MF face may have been "prettied" up a bit in the etchings though.

(MF actual dress in Kremlin - the designs seem somewhat different from Etchings - though I don't really have a good detail photo of this dress)

I'm also inclined think that at least one photo may have been taken of GD Elizabeth and Serge in their wedding outfits based on the quality and sheer amount of detail in this engraving.

(I think the source for this image is a Russian newspaper)

Any thoughts?

The GD Sergei's and his spouse wedding's sketch is indeed from a newspaper Vsemirnaya Illustratsiya. The description under the photo in that source says the original is not a photo, but just a sketch.

That's interesting. I've always thought the detail and accuracy of this etching makes it rather suspicious that the source was an actual photo. It wasn't uncommon in this period for the source of newspaper images to to be etched from photos.  Ones that were done from sketches on location tend to be rather vague on details, or completely wrong, with costume at least.

Who is the boy with Marie? He's too old for Mikhail, I think, and too young for Nicholas. Could it be George?

Which ads another reason to why I dislike Sisi.

Unfortunately the site where I saved the pic did not add more info than the same caption that I wrote here. The boy definitely can't be  Nicholas (who would be 17 years old, very old), but is also very young  for being George who was 14 in 1885. But Michael was 7 years old in that year and I think that is the one who fits more with the boy of the picture, IMO.
