Thank you! Urgh.... why do people get upset when they are corrected? Nobody knows everything and I for one would rather have someone to help me with labels rather than putting out false information for the sake of my ego.....

Exactly. But well, some people prefer to live sunk in the ignorance, as the "curator" of this gallery

The decor appears to match other photographs taken of her rooms at Archangelskoye.

Господа! Пишите правильно: не Zenaida, а Zinaida (Зинаида)
Lord! Write correctly: not Zеnaida, and Zinaida (Зинаида)

I have seen it spelled both ways, and by some very knowledgeable people.  The French spelling is "Zénaďde;" I'm guessing that may be the reason for the "Zenaida" spelling.

You are correct Dru. The majority of non Russian text books use the French spelling of Zénaďde, which has gradually become Zenaida, have even seen a few 'Zinaide'. While the correct spelling is Zinaida, I think the variations in pronunciation cannot be helped. It's the same with the variations of Yusupov (Yussupov, Yossopov, Iusupov, Youssoupov, Youssoupoff).
