Her hair looks much fairer than it's usually portrayed, though the dress is very similar to her portrait by Hau: http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=363.msg430043#msg430043 .  She actually looks a little closer to her sister Olga, with softer features - perhaps the artist was not given a sitting, and had to work from engravings or other portraits.

I actually agree with you, but I've read that the portrait is labled "Maria Nikolaevna, Duchess of Leuchtenberg," so who knows for sure?  Supposedly, it was painted in early 1843, when she was visiting Italy.

I think that the man in the back between Alexander and Vladimir is Albert of Saxe Altenburg.

You're probably right--I fear I'm not really an expert on Maria Nikolaevna's children.  I'll have to double check my sources next time  :-[

Right. That's Albert of Saxe-Altenburg.
