This is from the catalogue for the Portland Art Museum exhibit- Hesse, A Princely German Collection. A lot of Roamnov items in it. Was wondering if anyone has gone to it yet ?

I went to the exhibition in Sante Fe, New Mexico last last summer. It was really amazing. The things I remember most were Alexandra's robe that was white with huge pink polka dots. Room plans for the girls that were also shown in Anastasia's Album. A photo album. Letters of OTMA. A note passed between Olga and Tatiana showing a drawing of a girl. Alexei's toys including a large rocking horse. Lilies of the valley basket. And they had classical music playing along with rare home videos on a television screen.
