It was found hidden in the Corps de Pages building in Tsarskoye Selo, during reconstruction work.  The problem is that the building is privately owned, and under Russian law, the painting is the property of the owner of the building, a Moscow business man.  While the painting is at the Museum currently, there will likely be a dispute as to whether the Museum can keep the painting as Historic Patrimony, or the work will have to be returned to the man who owns the building.

Interesting.

I was very surprised that the man who brought the painting to the museum, do not know who was in the picture. He saw an old newspaper 1917, so brought to the museum.

Wow! That's so interesting. One would hope he would turn the piece over to the museum as opposed to wanting to make some coin.
Thanks for the news guys. I'm looking forward to seeing how this unfolds.

Sadly, for now, the owner wants the painting back.  Of course, it also depends if he wants to keep the painting in the building as part of the Corps de Pages history of the place or just wants to sell it.

1. In this house lived Dr. Botkin.
2. Iraida Bott on TV said that this portrait will adorn the Alexander Palace.

I'm confused about the Dr. Botkin part.  The first link says the building was the Corps des Pages building....

I'm glad Iraida will have it for the Alexander Palace though!

This house is situated near the palace and stables near Attendants. Tatiana Botkin writes in his book that she could see out of the window when preparing horses for the Empress and girls.

You have to remember that our beloved city has experienced a revolution, the Nazis, who left the city only 250 people for his service and all the time the portrait was in a secret place and no one has found and he was gone. It is a miracle for the Russian people!
Sorry for bad English.

Very interesting and exciting. Gives me hope that one day the Holy Grail - the recordings of the children's voices done for Marie Feodorovna - will be discovered.

Maria Feodorovna was Orthodox and could not do anything without the blessings of the priest. She died in her arms when the Bible was not a record of a children's choir.

No you misunderstand.  all of the children made sound recordings of their voices on records as a gift for Maria Feodorovna, they were in the Anitchkov Palace and disappeared during the Revolution.
