I have come across this modern painting, on this website https://www.avito.ru/moskva/kollektsionirovanie/kartiny



and I am ashamed to say I have no idea who the men behind the family are? White officers?

Possibly. The man second from the right looks like Petr Wrangel, and the man on the extreme left could be Alexander Kolchak.

I have a question on this painting:
Ball at the Assembly Hall of the Nobility in St Petersburg on 23 February 1913
Kardovsky, Dmitry Nikolaevich

http://hermitagemuseum.org/fcgi-bin/db2www/descrPage.mac/descrPage?selLang=English&indexClass=PICTURE_EN&PID=JRR-5990&numView=1&ID_NUM=1&thumbFile=%2Ftmplobs%2FDXQI3A_236VX40KR4G6.jpg&embViewVer=last&comeFrom=quick&sorting=no&thumbId=6&numResults=1&tmCond=kardovsky&searchIndex=TAGFILEN&author=Kardovsky%2C%26%2332%3BDmitry%26%2332%3BNikolaevich
 
Who are the members of the imperial family seated and standing under the red canopy ?
Seated:
Grand Duchess Victoria Feodorovna - Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna - Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna - ? - ? - Empress Alexandra Feodorovna

Maybe some of you know who the other two women are !



Better late, than never!
Paul Gilbert featured it on the 100th anniversary, with commentary.

That painting is one of my favorites.

It's a very poignant one, though.

Nine years later, that same hall, the present Philharmonic, was the scene of the show-trial of the New-Martyr Benjamin, Metropolitan of Petrograd.

One of the photos is taken from almost the same angle. But look who's in the Royal Box!

Looks like Tatiana, Nicholas and Olga.
