No, there is not. But they published a book-album with German photographs of Peterhof, Gatchina, Pavlovsk and TS.

Tsarskoe Selo. Book taken in 1943 returns to Alexander Palace.

In September 2011 Don Manuel-Angel Conde Basilio of Malaga (Spain) visited St. Petersburg for the first time to honour the dying wish of his father who asked the son to return to Tsarskoye Selo a book he salvaged from a devastated Alexander Palace in 1943. Back then Fernando Conde Lopez was a young surgeon of the Spanish Blue Division accompanying the German Army on the Eastern Front during World War II.

Tsarskoe Selo

At a recent Dorotheum auction in Vienna, Tsarskoye Selo won the EUR 260,000 bid on painting from Alexander Palace - A Stroll in Palermo by Franz Ludwig Catel.

The painting was presented as a gift from Nicholas I to Alexandra Fedorovna in 1846. The painting became part of her private collection and was displayed in the Alexander Palace in Tsarskoe Selo together with other paintings by Catel. It remained there until her death in 1860.

This painting is depicted in a watercolour by Luigi Premazzi, who had been commissioned to paint scenes of the Russian Imperial palace and Catelís work can be seen hanging at right on the wall of the Marble (Billiard) Drawing-Room in the Alexander Palace at Tsarskoe Selo.

Brought to the Dorotheum by a private collector from Rome, A Stroll in Palermo was auctioned in its original frame. The painting will return to its historical place of display in the Marble (Billiard) Drawing-Room of the Alexander Palace after the latterís restoration, which is to commence in 2012.
