I am a little confused about which building they are referring to. Is this a private house beside the Catherine Palace and Lyceum?

News from Tsarskoïe Selo state Museum-Preserve official website  :  http://eng.tzar.ru/info/info-events/title/?id=3228

 with these importants clarifications :

" The house on 10 Sadovaya Street near the Duty Stables pavilion is a cultural property known as the Kavalersky Dom (Cavaliers’ House). Built in 1752–53 by the architect Savva Chevakinsky and partially reworked in 1784 by Ilya Neyelov, in the early 1900s it was occupied by the Gendarme Corps Colonel Boris Gerardi, who was the Head of Palace Police in 1905–17.  

The museum experts are working on determining the author and the original owner of the portrait. As soon as it is added to the Museum’s registered reserves, the portrait can be put on display at exhibitions dedicated to the family of the last emperor of Russia. "

It has been confirmed that the portrait was donated by the owner of the house to the Alexander Palace Museum.  He wasn't actually head of the Palace Police, he was Police Chief for Tsarskoye Selo.

I agree, excellent news!   Does anyone have any idea how difficult it will be to restore the painting?  Will restretching the canvass remove some of the creases?

Restoring a painting is not an easy process but the experts at Tsarskoe Selo are the best. Remember they have restored war damaged painting to the point where it is hard to tell... the painting of Catherine the Great in the Peterhof throne room is a classic example. It was in shreds and they managed to put it back together. Restoring this painting would be a cake walk compared to that task.

Thanks for the information Londo954.  I had not realized the Catherine the Great painting had been so severely damaged.
