Found this labeled as NII and Empress Alexandra at a reception at the French Embassy, 1899

It's actually an illustration from the official coronation album, and shows Nicholas and Alexandra arriving at the Montebello Ball (1896). Getty got this wrong...:-)

I couldn't decide where to put this, since it is both a painting and photo question, but here it goes:

Can anyone identify the photograph this miniature of Alexandra from the Fifteenth Anniversary Egg is based on?


Usually you can identify the series, if not the exact photo, that the miniaturist used. I'm having trouble with this one though--it looks to me like it is based on the 1898 photos taken by Karl Hahn, such as this one:



But in the photos where she appears alone, she is shown wearing a diadem and her earrings have changed. I also haven't been able to find one where she appears in profile. Has anyone seen a image from this series where she is shown like this? Or does anyone else know what other photo/s it might be based on? Thanks in advance!
