Elizaveta Mikhailovna by Daffinger.  Posted before, but this one has no mark.

Has anyone ever seen a larger version of this Elizaveta Mikhailovna portrait?  It looks like it's based on the Hau portrait, but she's holding a fan and wearing different headdress.

What was the name of the Baden prince whom Maria Mikhailovna was expected to marry?

I think that was Friedrich, future husband of Luise of Prussia. His eldest brother Ludwig was mentally retarded and unlikely a candidate as a husband.

There's a color portrait of her in page 6 of this topic. Or do you mean some more other portraits?

Svetabel,you are great for reminding me ;-) I have a question.

I remember even before those pictures-you took by yourself(I presume) same pictures/portraits from some museum and identified them the same as now.The portrait of Maria Mikhailovna was very frequent on the web but always misidentified as Grand Duchess Maria Nicholaevna in 1844 by Vladimir Hau...Have you seen it yourself on the web?Scroll down and you will see:

http://www.nasledie-rus.ru/podshivka/6805.php

Of course I believe you as you have been to various museums and you are very much informed about everything related to Imperial family,but I was just confused why is this portrait in particular so much misidentified!

You know there is always a mess with the portraits of daughters of Emperor Nicholas I and his brothers' Mikhail...The portraits of these girls are often misidentified, also sometimes ALL Hau's 'sitters' looks very much alike )).
Personally I see a veeery slight resemblance to Maria Nikolayevna and do believe that's Maria M. The portrait from page 6 I scanned from a  recent bio on GDss Elena Pavlovna. Also I've seen it in the volumnious catalogue of the Russian Museum identiifed as Maria M.

Was the wedding of Adolph of Nassau and Elizaveta Mikhailovna celebrated at the Winter Palace, or somewhere else?
