This is very interesting RomanovsFan4Ever! Do you know where this is located or who drew/painted it?

Very late, but I finally found an information...It was showed at an Art Gallery in the building of the former Pokrovsky Cathedral (1826-1834), in Chuguev, Ukraine.

That is a nice painting of him, but I especially love the one of the entire family together. :)

I like the painting of the family; they are all very well done. I think they tok the scene from a pic in which you may see Ella dressed in her nun habit, along with the NAOTMAA, only she is not in this paintin.

Nicholas painting is not so good. Is acceptable art, but he looks as a mix between himself and Sergei Alexandrovich ...His face looks too much skinny!  ::)

He's wearing the uniform of His Majesty's Life Guard Hussars, of which he was Colonel-in-Chief. To judge by the number of pictures of him wearing it, this was one of his favourite uniforms, if not the favourite.

In British-speak hussar head dress is called a busby (note, what the Foot Guards wear is a bearskin).

Ann, indeed it's HIM Hussar's.

Some friendly five cents;). Maybe it would be interesting for someone.

N-II here is wearing a special General's type (being only Colonel of the Guard) ceremonial HIM Hussar's uniform (red tunic and white cape on the back). It's General type, because N-II here, as you can see, has a special golden patterns on dark blue trousers. Only Generals (from Major General to full General) were allowed to use these golden patterns. Btw, in addition to uniform with typical number of Russian Orders, N-II here is also wearing special golden aiguillette.
