Romanov art for my walls
« on: December 12, 2005, 11:12:13 AM »
Hello everyone !

I'm looking for a large poster or painting of the last Imperial Family for my apartment. I've spent quite some time online without finding a suitable object to buy. Do you have any idea where I could find a nice and quite large painting ? Money is not an issue.

Regards

/Gud bevare Tsaren

Well, there is this catalogue, I don't know if you recieve it in Sweden, and there is a reproduction of the painting of Nicholas II by Serov.
I am not sure of the size, but you can find it in earlier issues of this catalogue.
I will post the link to the site of that catalogue if I can...
(I need to find the catalogue ::))

Alright, the catalogue is called, "Treasures From A Bygone Era", and it has a whole section devoted to Imperial Russian antiques.
Here's the link
There is a virtual catalog, thought I think it may be under home decor.
Remember, this was an old issua, so it'll take some sleuthing....
(I'll try to find it)

There is usualy lots on eBay. There is one right now of Ella. But there are usually a few dozen remakes they sell.

An excellent idea, Laura MaBee. I scanned the swedish equivalent of ebay (www.tradera.com) and found a really nice painting. Awesome !  ;D

Great idea Gud bevare Tsaren, I have a little dresser in the corner in my room with all my Russian collectables, matroyshka dolls and lacquer boxes, books etc. as well as photos of the Imperial Family, it's a very neat little "corner of Russia" You'll have to show us pictures when your done decorating.  
Thanks for sharing all the catalogs too everyone!

 :o LarissaAnn, the Romanov family pics you have, are they the original real things or printed out versions on photo paper?

Most unfortunatly they are printed versions, I actually cut them out of some of my books like The Romanovs The Final Chapter.  I figured they're either going to sit in my book, or I could display them.  Wow, wouldn't orignals be AWESOME though??

lol thats what I do.
Yes, originals would be "Da Bomb!!" ::) :P
I actually found a Russian site where they were auctioning off some originals of informals of the Tsarevich.
As you could imagine, though, the starting prices were at around $800! :o I'm only 13!! can't ask my parents for THAT sort of allowance! ;)
