Empress Maria Alexandrovna Winter palace rooms book
« on: January 30, 2012, 06:10:38 PM »
Hey everyone just wanted to let you all know of a great book I got today.  It is printed by the State Hermitage museum and focuses on Empress Maria Alexandrovna rooms in the Winter palace, it has great pictures of what the rooms use to look like (water colours) and what some look like now.  Very nice book

I think this book has been mentioned before. I have it. It is indeed beautiful.

There is- at the Hermitage. Mine is in Russian as well, but I was told an English edition was coming.

No problem Eddie, I am waiting as well. I do not read Russian without a dictionary ! And even then it is "spotty" But, the Russian version is worth it. If I can find mine, I will post the ISBN.
