Are there any painted portraits of the two sisters?

I have seen portraits in postcard format, but sadly, they were not in color...

I couldn't find anything on the web but this small image. It's Eudoxia I think.

That's the image I saw on in black and white on the postcard!  So beautiful--I wish we could see it larger, and one of Nadejda as well.  Thank you for sharing MariaIIILuisa!

Here's the portrait of Eudoxia in better quality - link. The artist is Nikola Mihaylov. I found the image on Facebook in the profile of a man with amazing collection of photos. I couldn't go through all of it (because it's huge!), but I'm posting the link if you are interested + some highlights:

Nadejda.

Sorry--I just realized I already posted these.  Maybe a mod could delete this post?

This year's Vienna New Year's Day Concert included a festival march written by Johann Strauss for the wedding of Ferdinand and Marie Louise in 1893.

Strauss composed  two pieces: Festmarsch op. 452 ( march for Ferdinand) and Hochzeitsreigen op. 453 (waltz for Maria Luisa). Here are the cover and the title page of the original Hochzeitsreigen.

Hochzeitsreigen op. 453 (waltz for Maria Luisa)

A Reigen (round dance) in name only, apparently. Type "Reigen" into YouTube and you get an Austrian medieval dance troupe dancing to the Pippi Longstocking song :-): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zzQWtjMcHM BTW I think Pippi claiming her father was "the gay tsar of Bulgaria" would have worked just as good in these PC times as the original "negro king in the South Seas".

Берёзы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

Are there any existing painted portraits of Nadezhda? Almost all other members have there portraits in Bulgarian palaces, but none of her. :(
