Hello Covenant:

Did you ever complete your computer pictures of the AP?  I don't remember seeing them yet.

Hello!

On album 332 there is a picture of a staircase to the princess room. I have been told that the orginal stairway was made from crystal. Does anyone know anything about that or is it just a fairytale?

Hi,
 u know when The Yusupov Palace began to work as a museum people had little fact about its history. The oaken staircase at the pic was made in 1890th, but some staircase to Princess's  bedroom was arranged in the mid-19 century. Many years ago they say, 1st staircase was made of crystal, but after the next refurbusing its crystal piers were used for redesigning of the Ball room. But actually, it's a myth.

Best regards.

The principal staircase was rebuilt in 1860-2 by Monghetti.

Hello
The second floor plan of the palace there he was canned?, In his memoirs of Felix says that this is a floor that is its rooms, those of his brother and his paternal grandmother, and a chapel.

Are there pictures of recent and ancient chapel or did she was dismantling after the revolution?

Just for fun, a video have been realized with great soprano Anna Netrebko with some russian popstar in the Youssoupov palace on the Moika.

Amazing.

someone describng Feliks Feliksovich junior's Moika enfilade rooms:

"The enfilade was opened by the Library, the walls of which were lined with Karelian birch panels and “covered with emerald painting”. It was followed by the Dining Room of "Amethyst", then the Cabinet of the Young Prince, with the chariots of Apollo and Aurora, soaring in the picturesque vaults, painted by N. Tyrsa.

Nearby, there was a large living room, furnished with a Parisian white set of “swan-neck shape”, topped with a shade with the finest openwork paintings of S. Chekhonin. The last hall in the suite - the Ballroom (Dance), was decorated with a colonnade of light-coffee artificial marble, snow-white wall bas-reliefs by the sculptor B. Yakovlev and paintings of refined coloristic shades - N. Tyrsa. According to the architect A. Beloborodov, a gallery of the Winter Garden adjoined the semicircular part of the hall."
