She does not look at the wall and into the camera and on the person who makes the photo.

Another of Alix and a closer look at the wall


Re the right-hand photo:  To the left of the large framed picture at center is a narrow picture that appears to be that of an old city street.  Is this not a picture that recently found its way back to the palace?

Dear Sanochka you're right !!

In 2011 , March 31st , two painting of the artist Alexander Volkov-Muromtsev , who painted under the pseudonym " A.N. Russova " , returned to Alexander Palace .
He painted predominently in watercolours that included genre scenes , interiors of cathedrals , landscapes and views of oriental towns and cities , such as Cairo , Luxor , Constantinople , as well as those of Italy .

These 2 watercolors , originally hung in the Alexander Palace , had disappeared during the Second World War :
 - a view called " In a catholic church " , hung in the large cabinet of Emperor Nicholas II .
 - the other is a view of an italian town originally hung in the Mauve Room of the Empress Alexandra Feodorovna .

Here Olga Taratynova , Director of the Tsarskoye Selo Palace Museum-Preserve accepts painting that once hung in the Alexander Palace :

Thank you very much Bryndis. This photo is amazing to see Alexandra sitting in this bookcase nook! Who is the lady next to her, she looks very familiar?

It's Elena Vladimirovna.
There's a photo of her from the same day where she's sitting on the cozy chair (on the previous page.)

Thank you Bryndis. Do you know what year this photo was taken? Elena V. looks much older than Alexandra, yet she was ten years younger.

It's taken around 1899-1900 according the page I found it at http://statearchive.ru/434
I think it's just a a bad photo of her, she looks a bit younger in the chair one.
