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

Yes, they were married at the Winter palace.

I found this picture labeled as Grand Duchess Maria Mikhailovna by Neff, and it does bear a resemblance to the well-known engraving of her; does anyone else think it might be Maria?

Based on her picture from the previous page I think it could really be her,but let's wait for more opinions just to be sure...some painters painted many sitters in a same or similar way,so that's why I can't be sure...

I know this portrait labeled as:"Портрет молодой женщины"("Portrait of young woman") and it should be from Hermitage...

Neff also painted her sister and some other members of Imperial family,so he could have painted Maria too...

Grand Duchess Elizaveta Mikhailovna.  I posted this picture in color awhile back, but here is the biggest and clearest version of it I've seen yet.  Download for full size.

Wonderful picture, Dru! I would love to see a bigger colored version of that. I wonder where the portrait is located.. Elizabeth Mikhailovna's portrait are difficult to find. Perhaps because of there are few of them?  :-\

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.

I found it!  Isn't it beautiful?  ;D

Nice finding! I think that all the portraits done by Hau are beautiful.

I agree, Veronica--there's just something about his painting style.

Catherine as an old woman:



Does any one have a bigger version of this portrait of Adolph of Luxemburg? It's by Hau:
