 Please, if anyone know why the god on the painting is different from the one in Felix's arms?
I would appreciate any info on this. Thank you.

It is in fact the same dog on the photo of Felix posing and on the portrait by Serov. This dog is Gugusse, a fawn french bulldog that Felix bought in Paris, Rue de la Paix, during a trip for the 1900 Paris exhibition ( see Avant l'Exil translated Lost Splendour ). Alike many early french bulldogs from the 1880s/1900s, Gugusse probably had some problems with his ears which did not have the proper " bat ears " shape typical of the frenchies nowadays. On the photo, Gugusse 's ears are flopping down either because the dog is teething ( which would be stunning as the dog was about 4 years old when this portrait was painted ! ) or simply his ears were of the " wrong shape " but Felix may just have asked Serov to paint the dog with " proper ears ".
As we all know, with Prince Felix Youssoupoff it is always the same old story : a clever mixture of fiction and facts. Moreover, in my opinion Felix was so vain in his young age, that it would not be surpising he asked Serov to paint the dog with " proper ears ".
Gugusse lived till 1914 and was buried in the Moitka Palace gardens.

WOW!!!  lilijones provides another treat!! I have never seen these images. I've read a lot of his posts and he has stated that he's been collecting over the years in case anyone is wondering where he gets all of his information. Personally, I wonder if he doesn't have access to some archives somewhere. Anyway, thankyou lilijones for yet another treat. You are one of my favorite posters because you always seem to come up with new stuff. Thanks for sharing. I would post a Yussupov image but I've seen the pic posted elsewhere. So I'll refrain. Nice images!!!!!

Felix was considered to be one of the most handsome men in Russia during his younger years. Although as he aged, he didn't retrain any of his 'boyish' good looks. I have to say pictures of him during the war and after show his looks taking a gradual decline, IMO ;)

No problem Margarita. It was posted some time ago but as always I saved it just in case it was removed. Not sure who posted it, I want to say Annie, but I'm not totally sure.  :-\

Believe me it's him, he just didn't age very well.  :-\
of course I know it's him)) but he's soo different))
hm, yeah, Alexandra is very different too.

sorry but Im a lil confused - you say that he and Irina didn't change a lot during years or you say that they aged a lot? >_<

thanks for the pics!!
