Hi everyone!
Just want to share with you some rare portraits of HM Maria Fedorovna, which I have in my collection of images.
The first one is by N.G.Shilder (1887):

h, yes. She was a beatiful woman and knew how to wear a nice dress. She was very stylish, very regal, a gift for the eyes.

Alexander III & Marie Feodorovna by Ivan Kramskoy.  I don't think I've seen this one here...

It turns out that Marie Feodrovna was also a talented artist.  I thought this link might interest some people. I'd love to see more of her work. Also on the wish list is some of Ella's paintings. So many royal ladies in the 19th century painted, but you rarely see examples of their output.

Wonderful paintings, I'm particularly amazed by the first one, the accuracy with which she painted every detail it's absolutely stunning, she was indeed a skillful painter.

I agree, although I doubt she had much to say about the coronation dress.

Not sure about that again. For example weding jewewls were strickly selected for the occassion by tradition. Donīt see wha coronation jewels would be difference, but I can be wrong of course.
