Re Reply # 489:  Also, remember the asking price is ONLY for the portrait, UNFRAMED. When the portrait arrives, it must be mounted on a stretcher and should be properly framed.  Proper/tasteful framing can be terribly expensive. Though the artist offers to mount and frame the piece, IMO, I would NOT have it done and sent through the mails. (I speak from experience on such items, framed and unframed!) Then there are also the shipping charges ($50. to the USA, rolled). It could be a VERY expensive proposition!
                       On a "side note", of my opinion only, and no endorsement of the artist:  The artist expresses herself in "picture-perfect" (pun intended!) English and has 100% satisfaction responses, having been registered with e-Bay since 2005.  It is interesting that of the 39 shown transactions, the majority seemingly to the USA, then Netherlands, UK, France, etc.  With multiple purchases from at least 3 customers., one would assume that she does pleasing work with reliable consequences!         Regards,  AP

That does sound pricey.  But Romanov devotees are likely to be around for a while, so maybe it would hold its value.

She must have used the 1893 photo (London?), but she has turned his torso slightly, and consequently his face looks narrower than I am used to seeing in other paintings.  Maybe thinness is considered an aristocratic look??

This artist has added information about his "Romanov" work/s scope (it also reveals that the artist is a "he").  In reply to an inquiry from France, he reveals that he is doing separate portraits of each member of the last immediate Imperial family.  The next (now nearing completion) work offered is going to be the Grandduchess Anastasia N. and will be posted in a week or so. Will be interesting to see if the same "problem" of the eyes persists.  Regards,  AP.
