click on images for larger versions




Bébé, 1925
.
i can't recall, nor can i find any info on the artis,
but i imagine it's the same one who did the portrait of her mother


.


WOnderful picture Brian...quick question. Are you sure it's from 1925? Wouldn't Bébé have been ten years old in 1925? She looks older in the picture.

Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.

when the Irina's age in 1925, was pointed out, i had to admit the portrait just didn't match up correctly.
so i went back & checked...

i'd like to apologize.  in my haste, i attached the caption for the portrait of Irina Yusupova Sr,
the wrong image.  the caption just said "princess Irina Yuspova, 1925" and since i had the wrong image (the one i posted) of a young woman,
i assumed it was Bébé.

i have the images stored in one file and the info for them stored in another -- some images have quite alot of information,.
and i just wasn't paying attention.

sadly, we're not allowed to self-censor our own posts --- which i don't actually understand...
but that's a horse of a different color.


the portrait i posted as Bébé, is actually:

Мария Бутакова, урожденная Евреинова.1931
(trans: "Maria Butakova, nee Evreinova.1931")

the artist's name is not listed in the info i have for either image,
and i trust svetabel, so i'll go along with her, that the portrait is by
Zenaida Serebryakova --- she's the artist for the senior Irina's portrait, anyway.
and as the styles look the same or very similar, i still say both are done by the same artist.

so, once again, i sincerely apologize -- the image i posted was NOT Bébé!!   :-( 


"when i die, i hope i go like my grandfather --
peacefully in my sleep; not screaming & in terror,
like the passengers in his car."

wait...is this the picture you are referring to?

I never knew who the artist was, but it seems to fit the your description.

Thanks for the clarification Brian. :)

Tatiana (Bebe's daughter) was a very beautiful lady, she was as beautiful as her granny, her
mom (Bebe) doesn't look like her mom very much.

Bebe's daughter name is Xenia and she is still alive.

In the last photo the resemblance of Irina-younger to her father is really striking.

So very true. IMO I think her features (like her mother's) were a little to strong to make her classically beautiful but still she appears to have been an attractive girl.
