A bigger and clearer version of Alix's famous portrait by F.A. von Kaulbach.
It's the best version I was able to find.

From vitassim's liverjournal, painting of Empress Alexandra based in the 1899 photo session. I love the soft colors and touch used for it.

That is a beautiful painting of the Empress. The artist managed to capture her expression perfectly, and the detail is great!

These are all wonderful.   So many details that capture Alexandra.
Beautiful faithful Nargony.

I would be really grateful if someone could answer this for me.

In Massie's book. "Nicholas and Alexandra" there is a portrait of Alexandra (a photo) ... she is in court dress with a tiara but she only has on one glove.

Does anyone know the reason why she is only wearing one glove?

I'm sure it's not earth-shatteringly important but it did strike me as a little odd.

thank you.

The photo if I recall was one of a series taken when Alexandra was dressed for the ceremony of the opening of the Duma in 1906.  Therefore your question was answered in this post:
http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=715.msg86590#msg86590.  Essentially, wearing one glove is to enable the wearer to cross themselves with their ungloved hand.  The state opening of the Duma had religious components; you can see Alexandra and Maria Feodorovna standing behind a priest in one photograph of this ceremony and presumably they would have crossed themselves at a point, or points, of the process.
