Family:



Alexandre,

 thank you for posting those images. The second family picture I have seen before but the not first. Is there way to get a better image of it posted?

Thanks

I love the military photographs. Does anyone know where they were taken ? I wonder what the building on the hill was, it looks very interesting. Could this have been Krasnoe Selo ? If so, the building could have been some sort of lookout post.

Also could someone tell me where Zenaida and Felix lived at the end of their lives ? I seem to remember reading that it was a Villa near Rome.
Does anyone have photographs or the name of the Villa ?

Thanks

This the smaller of the 2 Serov paintings of Felix was the one Felix jr had in his London flat and thus was not lost in the revolution.Later the property of the famed cellist Rostopvitch it returned to Russia when his collection was bought enbloc by a obligarch and returned to Russia.

Indeed, Felix Sr was a very handsome man in his youth. Zenaida and Felix made a very handsome couple in their youth.
