The Imperial Family / Re: identification

I found this portrait of a young lady which is located in one of the Tsar's palaces but there is no identification whatsoever about the identity of the lady. I found it among the portraits of the Russian empresses, but I am not sure who. My first thought was Elizabeth Alexeievna but she looks so different from her other portraits.

Here is the portrait:

And here is a painting of Tsar Alexander I's working study by Eduard Hau. One of the portraits on the right looks like the portrait from above.

Can anyone please establish the identity of the woman? Thank you.

Thank you Dru for that painting! I've been searching for it for ages! It's very beautiful. :)

This young girl looks like GD Alexandra Georgievna. It was done in 1884, when Alexandra was 14.
Any opinions will be appreciated. Thank you.

I found a possible portrait of Alexandra Nikolaievna. This is actually a portrait on a porcelain dessert plate from the dowry service of Alexandra. It was dated in 1844. I'm guessing that since this plate was part of Alexandra's dowry, the portrait on it could be Alexandra.  :-\

This is a part of a self-portrait of Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun. At a closer look, we can notice that she is actually doing a sketch of a portrait of the Empress Elizabeth.

And this is the whole portrait.

I'm just reviving this old thread with a beautiful portrait of Ekaterina Pavlovna.

Wonderful picture, Dru! I would love to see a bigger colored version of that. I wonder where the portrait is located.. Elizabeth Mikhailovna's portrait are difficult to find. Perhaps because of there are few of them?  :-\

Ella in the late 1890s or early 1900s.

What a beautiful portrait Alexandrina-Sofia! Thank you for posting. May I know the date that it was painted and its current location? :)

She was indeed an interesting person, Dru, just like her sisters. You can definitely look forward for an article about her. :)

Lovely portrait, Dru! I've only seen a small copy of it. Thank you for posting a larger and clearer version. :)
