Is that by Jean-Baptiste Isabey?

Yes, it is by Isabey. 1814.

The portrait above was from the collection of Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich. Apparently, Sergei admired the Empress Elizabeth so he liked collecting portraits and mementos of the Empress.

Very interesting, Gem; I did not know that Sergei was so interested in this empress.  I just happened to find the portrait while googling, but I couldn't find any information on it.

He also wanted to write a book on the Empress that's why he collected mementos of her.

Does anyone know the reasons for the rapprochement between Alexander I and Elizabeth?

While I have never read anything addressing the subject directly, I believe it was connected to his increased sense of spirituality. Since his last years were so famously characterized by an obsession with God and Christianity I assume that motivated him to leave Maria Naryshkina to return to Elizabeth. That is just speculation though.

Elizaveta Alexeievna with her first daugher, Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna, who was speculated to be the daughter of Elizaveta's lover, Adam Czartoryski, rather than of her husband, Alexander I--at little Maria's baptism, Emperor Pavel wondered aloud how two blond parents could possibly have a dark-haired child.

This is the first time I have ever seen a picture of either of Alexander and Elizaveta's daughters, who both died in early childhood, and I was very happy to find it!
