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!

Does anyone know who the man in civilian costume is in this photo? He's the only one in civilian clothes, and it's neither Gilliard nor Gibbes, and I find it curious.

He is Prince of Prussia Waldemar, cousin of the emperor's children ashore in Finland, ca. 1909.

14 beautiful portraits on sale by Vladimir Hau:

https://www.christies.com/lotfinder/drawings-watercolors/vladimir-hau-a-leather-bound-album-entitled-6174476-details.aspx?from=searchresults&intObjectID=6174476&sid=4ca7afa0-17d3-4850-a216-b4fb0970e1e1

Can anyone identify them?

I think I can help you with most of them; Vladimir Ivanovich Hau is my favorite portraitist! :)

1. Countess A.M. Vielgorskaya and Baroness Sophia Petrovna Fredericks
2. Julia Feodorovna Baronova
3. Julia Vasilievna Litke
4. Anna Alexeievna Okulova
5. Vera Arkadeevna Stolypina
6 ???
7. Fr. Vasili Borisovich Bazhanov (pretty sure he was confessor to the family of Nicholas I)
8. A.I. Sauerweid
9. F.A. Zhil
10. Andrei Beling
11. Theodore August von Grimm
12. ???
13. ???
14. Natalia Nikolaevna Kamenskaya (maid of honor to Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna) - this one is actually by Hau's half-brother Eduard Petrovich Hau.
