Marinsky palace, town hall of St Petersburg
« on: March 01, 2007, 09:50:48 AM »
I pursue my list of wealthy aristocrat who were both wll-known for their titles,fortune,btu even more interesting for their taste in art.

Princess Marie married to Eugène's grand son de Beauharnais:Maximilien de Leuchtenberg(encore un damné français!his father  was the son of Joséphine's -wife of Napoléon the Irst-firqt wedding)was one of the favorite daughter of Alexander II,who accepted a wedding of love whereas her hand was asked by the greatest court in Europe on condition that she stayed in Russia.

Her palace designed by Stackenschneider(1840-1845) became the place of her collection that has been mostly sold by soviets...remains only those pics who could give an idea of what was life thre before revolution...More in the book:Grandes collections de la Russie impériale by Neverov and Ducamp: http://www.priceminister.com/offer/buy/3132141/Neverov-Oleg-Grandes-Collections-De-La-Russie-Imperiale-Livre.html

Vassily,
Please do not think that because there is no comments on a post, it means it is not interesing or fascinating.
I, unfortunately, do not have pictures to share, but I always wondered  what this palace looked like. The first time I heard about it was when  GD Marie Pavlova the elder  used  it to have tea parties in it whenever  the Dowager Empress was out of St. Petersburg...
It is a beautiful place.

I enjoy your posts as well, Vasilly. But I have nothing to add. I have the same books you do ! If I find something different to add, I will surely share it.

That sounds really interesting, could you please elaborate!  Why did Maria Pavlona use Mariinksy Palace, what about her own Vlad. Palace on the Neva?

Well.. I think they both liked the palace and it was state propiety, I think MP thought that if MF could use, shoe could also do it. Although, MP allways did when MF was out of St. Petersburg. I think MP knew it was not ok to do it, but she just did not care.
One thing is for sure, MP never held another tea party there after MF caught her doing it..

Hi DNJ & Valmont,

I think you are both confusing the Maryinski Palace with the Maryinski Theater.

It was the Imperial Box in the Maryinski Theater that Maria Pavlovna held a couple of tea parties and one evening party in when the Dowager Empress was out of town.
Once word got back to DE, she put a stop to it.  The Palace was never involved.

Maria Pavlovna had the Vladimir Palace and Maria Feodorovna had the Anichkov Palace to entertain in and did often;  they didn't need the Maryinski Palace.

Hi Valmont,

No need to apologize;  I often get names and places mixed up.
And often, when coming across names in these royalty threads, I have to stop and figure out just which Mary, Victoria, Nicholas and Alexander we're talking about.

Best regards,
Larry
