Watercolours of Alexander palace [exterior]
« on: December 14, 2004, 10:39:23 AM »
Hi everyone! I always found watercolours to be the most accurate depiction of the palaces since photos from the times before destructin and revolution are black and white. Does anyone have watercolours of the palace? I'd appreciate it a lot!

Aside from the F.Teykhel anyway.

The first one is on the cover of the exhibit book I bought at the Nicholas and Alexandra/Alexander Palace Treasures exhibit this year in Newark, but it doesn't say the artist, just the title; Garden Facade of the Alexander Palace.

Maybe the first one is by Sadovnikov.

I would be most interested in seeing them also !!!!
Are there any that depict the interiors like the other palaces.....Did Hahn et al paint the AP as they did the Winter Palace and Gatchina

Not exactly a watercolour but an etching of the Palace exterior and area around in 1873-74 years. Looks quite different from nowadays.

I am not sure if this watercolor has been posted as I am unable to see the previous pics.
