it looks better and nicer in your version

I dont know if this portrait was colorized with some software or its an original painting

I  think that it was colored, if I'm not wrong I saw it on black and white

Same think with Koppay`s portrait. There s a B&W version and the original in colors. You gotta think there s no many books that prints portraits in color...

Thanks for saying who was the man with them, I agree that the girls doesn't resemble OTM.
The portrait below is pretty, the only strange thing is that her nose looks a bit red

Attention Reply # 54:  As to the importance of the GD Michael A. in the first illustration in Reply # 53, remember that UNTIL GD Alexei N. was born (and since GD George A. had died), GD Michael A. was HEIR to the throne, thus next in line as Emperor (which of course, he very oddly/tragically attained for a very brief period of hours). This illustration was apparently made before the birth of GD Alexei N.   Regards,  AP.
