EmmyLee, there are more photos to this series called "The opening of the Alexander Palace to the public. 1928". One is amazing of the Catherine Palace. As it is 1928 and the children's floor was open, the simplicity of the bed and surround, plus the curtained divider - this room could be one of the maid's rooms opposite to the grand duchess suite on the second floor. I am still working on Yakovlev which description of 1927 may help more to identify.

 How great is it this watercolour painting should show us the chair the Imp was sitting in when this photo of her in her parent's room was taken ?( in the watercolour,  one can see the chair's back in front of the bench at the foot of the bed ) Thanks for posting!

Do you know who the artist is?

I have two watercolors of the mauve room that appear to be by the same person, but I have no idea who it is.

Sadly no, but I bow to them. Watercolour is tough imo.

This photo - summer 2012. I have a photo of this place to our great tragedy of the great Patriotic war of the USSR against the Nazis.
On the photo - a corridor on the 2nd floor above the Front halls and the Windows of the corridor look at the colonnade. This hall you can see the layout of the Palace.
