A detail of the Red Drawing Room. With a portrait of Princess Irina Alexandrovna on the wall, and her bust on the mantle.

Thank you Svetabel for posting that photo. Do you know if the painting and bust survived the revolution?

I don't know, but that's the 1st time I've seen them. Possibly they had been lost or now in the collections of the Yusupovs descendants.

I'm not sure where I got this floorplan of Xenia's palace, but could anyone help identify the rooms that have their photos posted above?

Dear BobG...
I hate to disappoint you, but this floor plan looks very much like the one of Matilda Kshesinnskaja's Mansion... [

Dear xirbis,
You are absolutely right, and I don't know how I labeled this as Xenia's palace.  No wonder I had such a hard time figuring out the rooms.  Thanx for setting me straight!

I wonder if anyone does have a floorplan of Xenia's Palace?
