This was painted in 1907 by Nikolai Kornilyevich Bodarevsky.  Here is a link to a large version of the portrait

A few more of Alexandra





---The two above are different versions of the same portrait, you can see how images were recycled throughout the empire & foreign relatives by differing artists from an original template---

I don't know I'm afraid. There were many portraits painted like this in the 19th century from Alexandra's offical photos. Some other member may have the information.
