Aloha all!

And a big WOO HOO from me here on Kaua'i!!

What a great day it is to be a Romanov buff, right??   So exciting to see these photos, and especially the profile pictures!

How awesome is this! And how cool is it that new stuff keeps coming out periodically, always keeping we Romanov fans on our toes?

Nearly a century later and, for most of us, years after we first became interested in the subject and still there are plenty of things to get excited about!

I read somewhere that the profile pics were the artist's inspiration for the Mosaic Egg? ( http://media-cache-ec4.pinimg.com/736x/16/ad/22/16ad2208564c87a8a5595698d5dbdea5.jpg )

I know I'm really just a big sap and a cry baby but new pictures like these brings tears to my eyes. Our precious OTMA are gone but we are still lucky enough to get new pieces of their lives every now and again.

That's 1914?  :o I thought OT looked too young for that to be 1914.

No, it's 1914. Olga's got her hair up and Tatiana's has grown back.

All of their profiles show such a strong resemblance to each other. Olga and Maria have the same nose, and Tatiana and Anastasia do also.

Stunning pictures all, especially the 4 profile pictures of OTMA. 

As an aside, it's amazing the new pictures that are always popping up.  One wonders just how many never-before-seen pictures of the IF there must still be out there.

II know! I think about that all the time and I get so greedy because I want more more more!! But then.. I think.. I don't want them all now because I want to be 58 years old, log onto the net and see a new picture of my girls coming out of the shadows.

To the best of my recollection I've never seen a picture of Kharitonov.

And completely unrelated: It scares me how much Dr. Botkin looks like Lenin.
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: nena on May 13, 2013, 03:51:52 AM
There is whole thread dedicated to Kharitonov on Servants section, take a look. There are at least two photos of him I am aware of.


 Somewhere I have read that the whole Romanov photos collection contains ca. 150.000 photos in the Russian Archives, and given the fact that we have seen only between 5000 and 10.000 of them...

Is that true?

I have been saying that since a screen shots  of these  photos appeared a few years ago. That is in my opinion. The  Mosaic egg  carved portraits and  these photos are exact copies of each other . That they were taken for the art work  would explain how the photos found themselves in this album...unless it's a family one? That wasn't clear years ago ( perhaps 3? ) when news of it first broke.

Also judging from Tatiana's expression, and if Anastasia is anything like my sisters, she's probably adding a little bounce in there too, just to make it that much more uncomfortable for Tatiana!

OTMA in costume

Sorry if these were already posted

A couple of fuzzy screen shots  from this series of   OTMA  in costume I have seen , but most here are new to me

  " Astonishing beauty "  is all I can say  Really, I'm speechless.

But then, OTMA photos always speak for themselves  Usually I would post such finds on Alexander Palace Forum. directly
But Photo-bucket has "upgraded" and now it's much  harder to use,at least for me ...but more, one can't  get the
 full size posted from it

So I have deiced to create a post on my art blog so I may post these amazing photos on AP forum  in their full size as I have them
They  were sent to me by my good  friend, and follow Romanov  fan,   N N 

 Thank you dear! <3

It's definitely the big pair's bedroom. The furniture, curtains, and lounge cover all match this photo of Olga in her room:

I'm scrambling to catch up here...just fantastic! I won't bother to spend to much time gushing because others have taken care of that already (I'll do my gushing privately, lol).

Any estimates on the year? Anne, you're right. On one hand judging from Tatiana and Olga they look like they could be 1912 or 1913, but Anastasia (unfortunately the least clear of the sisters in these photos) and to a lesser extent Marie both look older. Almost like it could be as late as 1915 or '16.

Post by: ashanti01 on June 04, 2013, 10:53:55 PM

Those are amazing - I am not an OTMA fan, but the girls look outstanding -- their dresses look like as if they moved to 1920's. My guess is that those were taken in 1914. Any diary entry to confirm that?

I honestly thought Maria was Olga until I saw the label. It's like they were taken in the last *possible* moment before the war changed their lives.

anyone seen it before??

I still can't get over how amazing these pictures are!!!!

I may be wrong (and I most probably am), but this picture instantly reminded me of the family portraits Princess Margaret of Connaught took with her children. I think it might be them:

Aloha all!

When I first saw these photos yesterday I almost fell out of my chair!  WOW!

I particularly love GD Olga's photo.....I enlarged it on my computer and she looks like an elegant society beauty from around 1920 in it....easy to imagine what she would have looked like had she lived to that age....

The only time I can remember seeing GD Tatiana with such loose hair was in that photo with her and GD Olga...tatiana sitting in a chintz chair with GD Olga kind of leaning over it....they were much, much younger though and looked like they had just woken up.....I really wonder if this photo is her hair or a wig?

Dress up?  Or a play?  Since there doesn't seem to be a great deal of rhyme or reason to the costuming....I'm going with dress up time! 

LOVE IT.....thank you so much!

Janet R.

I have looked at them more closely as well. And the sadness on their faces is so marked..
....now I'm wondering if it's from  captivity after they got well?

AN is far too mature looking for before the war imo and it's not just due to her hair being up

I lighted  contrast on  the group photo . Before I did so, I thought Marie's eyes were down cast.
But they are looking right  into the lens and I've never seen her so sad.  It's disturbing 

Thank you ,  Sara Araújo  for that ID!

I hesitate to read too much into their expressions. To me it looks more like they're all trying to achieve the same dramatic effect.

They all look great, but one thing I've noticed after looking at these photos several times is that it appears AN is a little on the heavy side. Is it just me or do others see what I'm seeing? Unfortunately she must have been moving around and came out blurred in the group shot so it's harder to compare the two photos.

I didn't want to mention it but for the sake of dating these photos I think it's important to bring up. I believe I remember the Empress pointing out in one of her letters/diaries that AN had put on some pounds at one point much to her disappointment. Can anyone confirm this?

If I recall correctly that was in a letter Alexandra wrote to Anna Vyrubova from Tobolsk. Anastasia herself also mentioned it in a letter during the winter of 1917-18.

Post by: blessOTMA on June 05, 2013, 08:37:13 PM
AN seems to have many layers on as well and her body is twisted a bit . Her hair is arranged like Olga's was in 1914  with little curls on the forehead and a band . interesting 

In the group photo I think she may be shaking a cluster of little bells...which she is also  holding in her  solo photo.

Of course Olga has the famous white  fox sole from the balcony photos... she is very thin here. Look at that neck

Even if  playing a role, it's  uncharacteristic for at least the small pair to have not one gleam of of smile. They would  usually be too pleased taking a photo so garbed. imo 
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: Georgiy on June 05, 2013, 11:15:12 PM
Looking at the photo of all 4 of them, MN looks far too young for it to be during captivity. I am guessing around 1914.
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: GDLynn on June 05, 2013, 11:50:58 PM
If it is indeed 1914 then Tatiana must be wearing a wig. Had her hair grown back more before they all got sick? I can't remember

I also remember something about Anastasia getting chubby and for some reason I keep thinking back to a picture of her standing outside the hospital and she looks a little on the chubby side. I don't have it on this laptop or I would post it. so another thought would be like 1916? Plus, Tatiana's hair is pinned back up by 1916 so maybe it was a lot longer by then? and I think Maria looks about right for 1916. but I could be wrong.

1916.

OTMA in costume

Sorry if these were already posted

A couple of fuzzy screen shots  from this series of   OTMA  in costume I have seen , but most here are new to me

  " Astonishing beauty "  is all I can say  Really, I'm speechless.

But then, OTMA photos always speak for themselves  Usually I would post such finds on Alexander Palace Forum. directly
But Photo-bucket has "upgraded" and now it's much  harder to use,at least for me ...but more, one can't  get the
 full size posted from it

So I have deiced to create a post on my art blog so I may post these amazing photos on AP forum  in their full size as I have them
They  were sent to me by my good  friend, and follow Romanov  fan,   N N 

 Thank you dear! <3

They are dreams come true if you ask me

They're beautiful photos of the girls! I'm speechless too.

Thanks for letting us know the original source, TatianaZ.  But I'm sure blessOTMA didn't mean any harm--people mark rare pictures all the time in order to keep the eBay sellers from trying to profit off them.

I also think it's neat seeing Alexandra preparing to take what appears to be a photograph of that gentleman on horseback.

It can't be Alfred, he died in 1899 and that picture was taken a lot later than that.
Could it be Carol of Romania?

I was going to say that it was later than for Alfred. It's not Carol of Romania either. I've seen the one of Nicolas II peeking out before but I can't remember what date was given. I'm thinking it's around the WW1 period though--please correct me if I'm wrong.

We seem to have a late 19th/early 20th century version of a photobooth in that Imperial railroad wagon window. There's this one of Nicholas II, now also Alexandra and the young officer, and of course it's framed Olga and Tatiana together as children, circa 1902, and I think I've also seen one of Olga alone looking most serious. I think there may have been others. It works; it frames and isolates the subject very nicely.

I'm not sure if this is truly a 'rare' one but I found it in a book by Marvin Lyons, seems that not many have seen it before
Nicholas with officers of His Majesty's Guard Regiment, c. 1890

(http://i1182.photobucket.com/albums/x453/Caitie_Grace/nickywithhisregiment_zps2226367e.jpg)

It is labelled as "Left to right: Alexander Constantinovich von Meier, Ivan Nikolaevich Svechin, Sergei Sergeevich Golovin, Nicky, Prince Lev Ivanovich Dondukov-Izedinov."

A navel officer TN, Nicholas is above her, but in the shadows. Then Imp, AF, Marie, Olga , mounted Cossack, and a lady in waiting

 Count Grabbe  sounds right. The lady looks a bit young for Buxhoeveden.
 It's interesting how's she not quite part of the group

Great new ones!

But guys, is that me or it seems that we have more pre-war Romanov pictures that those taken from 1914 on....? IMHO, I think that those from 1914 on are more rare.
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: grandduchessella on September 14, 2013, 10:56:25 AM
Because there were vacations, etc...pre-war it's not surprising there are seemingly more photos from that time period. Plus, all those photos were from the Hesse Archives--as they become more accessible, more photos will appear to the public. Also, the royal families were covered in the press and via postcards, etc...in that pre-war period so there were a large number of photos in the public venue than during the war when the focus shifted.

Simply remarkable. And though it's been said before, these only confirm that there are untold more Romanov photos, as well as other artifacts, just waiting to be made accessible.

One can't help but notice that in any of these photos in which there are children near Marie, her budding 'maternal' instincts are already apparent. She was attracted to  little children like bees to honey. Very sweet to behold.

The Darmstadt photos are amazing.  I'd never seen them until now.  My favorite of all is the one of Olga on the Standert, standing in long sweater and chatting with a woman seated with her back to the camera.  It truly is a candid moment quiescently frozen in time.

Can someone tell me who the nurse is, in the photo with Olga? (At least, I think it's Olga - the watermark is obstructing her face.)

Rita Khitrovo; like Grand Duke Nicholas, she stands out because of her exceptional height.

The photo of Rita and Olga is from a set of the children on a beach, but most of these wonderful photos are completely new to me. I especially like the one of Maria in red. That photo of Anastasia joking around is so familiar that finding out there's another photo of her from what looks like the same day is a pleasant surprise: it's the kind of thing that reminds me that despite the huge amount of photographs available online there must still be so many more that have never been shared with the public.

Can't agree more...!!! Spasibo, Tatiana!!!

I am having hard time to find the name of the exact location, I think that those were taken at one of the Romanov Grand Duke's estate in Crimea in autumn of 1912, but can't remember the name, Sarushka once posted some of Olga and Tatiana taken at same day, if I remember well. Feel free to correct me.

Thank you so much, Tatiana Z! These are wonderful, especially the one with Olga and (I'm guessing) Tatiana - it's a casual moment, yet there's something so beautiful about the composition. I've previously seen a low quality closeup of the one of Tatiana standing by herself, but this full photo, with the view of the landscape, is just lovely.

I thought there was something familiar about the way the girls were dressed, and your post helped me locate the photo I had in mind. This file was named Olga and Tatiana at Ai-Todor in 1912.

Nice to see Alexandra smiling. Is that Anna Vyrubova with her back turned to the camera that she's talking to?

I love that picture of Tatiana as well standing in the foreground and smiling away. Really artistic looking with the long shadow and open field, and of course her father speaking to that other gentleman (Count Fredericks?) in the background!

Did anyone notice in the hand painted photos that whoever coloured it showed what colour outfit the person is wearing in each photo session (not changing colours of outfit)  good example Tatiana wearing the purple dress alone and when she is behind Ana V and Anastasia's silly posses the hand colouring shows her dress is green. 

Just thought it was interesting.

Hi Tatiana Z,

I have seen a few of those pics you have posted many years ago.  Tatiana laying against Alix and the photo of Tatiana with her hands cupping her face.   Though didn't see the pic of Olga obviously taken during the same meal before.  So something new for me.

Wow! Tatiana Z, this is a great group of photos and I want to thank you especially for the one of Alexandra and Tatiana. I've seen a low-quality closeup of it and I've been hoping that one day I'd get to see the full photo. Tatiana looks so beautiful! The photos of Olga and Tatiana that seem to have been taken at the same time are also fascinating.

I see Tatiana in reply 221  and Olga in reply 219 are getting a jump on hairstyles that will become quite fashionable in the early 1920s. They don't look bad, of course, but I prefer the hair styles they had just after   the turn of the century.

And again, you are a great  AP Forum resource indeed, Tatiana Z.

Some new photos are beautiful and offer a glimpse into previously unknown moments in the family's lives, while others make a familiar moment feel fresh again by showing it from a different angle. I wouldn't have guessed the Tatiana and Maria photo's connection to the other fountain photo from the low-quality closeup I'd previously seen of it: the girls' caps showed that the photos may have been taken on the same day, but now this full version reveals that the two photos tell an amusing story.

I can't quite tell which one is Anastasia, and which is Olga. Is Anastasia the one with one foot up on the rim of the fountain?

Might there be another link to that so I could view the photo please?  Thanks!

Of course! Here it is:

(http://nd06.jxs.cz/431/959/246eee4d35_95912845_o2.jpg)

I love it so much because you get to see a most genuine and happy smile from her. Even Olga has a little smile on her face. Definitely one of my photos of them ever, even if it's mainly for TM.

But it does surprise me that Anastasia looks somewhat bored in the photo. I would think she would rather enjoy that!
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: edubs31 on November 13, 2013, 07:12:33 AM
Hard to say Anastasia looks bored. To me she appears to be biting her finger nails while this is going on. Often a tell tale sign that she's nervous, in this case, for her sister. My guess is that she's likely giggling under her breath here. Quietly hoping Marie falls in.

There's only so much you can tell from that side angle. A charming photo all the way around!

When I lighten  the photo of Marie with the swan, with a brightener,  it appears she is playfully feeding  the bird something
Her hand has something in its mouth ....and one can see she still has her camera as in the on the chair photo.

There's nothing like Romanov photos! Thank you again

Only I think who think the Grand Duchesses look like boys in drag here? Is it because of the postures, the dowdy dresses, the hairstyle, that they are on the brink of puberty?


I guess it could be only you. If Olga and Tatiana look like boys there , I, as a male of long standing, might be overwhelmed  to see real Russian teenage girls of 15 to near 17 years old, at least one of whom was widely acknowledged by her contemporaries to be a  remarkable beauty. As for "being on the brink of puberty", both by age  and  by their obvious   classic  female shape, both Olga and Tatiana look to have passed that life stage many years previously..

Wonderful, Tatiana Z!

I love seeing more of the girls in those instantly identifiable dot dresses. The May 1913 photo of all four, with Maria and Anastasia's hair looking as though it's flowing in the wind, is even better in Tatiana Z's high-quality version. The room where Alexandra is with all those flowers looks lovely to me and brings to mind the stories about how she missed flowers after the revolution. The best thing, though, is seeing so many new photos of Olga on her birthday, including one taken at the same time and place as one of my favourites, Standart 1912:

Overwhelming Tatiana Z, thanks again for these!

I'm particularly interested in the photos of Olga and Tatiana at Spala in autumn, 1912. This of course was around the time of the famous life threatening accident suffered by Alexei. Looking closely at the expressions on their faces you would almost think the "serious" looks are an expression of their inner anxiety over the health of their brother. I'm completely speculating of course, and it's not as if O & T always have a smiles on their faces in photographs (especially Tatiana who looks pretty serious more often than not), but it does make you wonder what they're thinking and how they must be feeling.

Yes, I certainly want to add my huge thanks to you for sharing these "new to me" photos.....it never fails to amaze me how many photos there are, and that are still being found apparently.  That family was a group of shutterbugs, thankfully!

Each photo seems to add just a little more to our "insight" (or perceived insight) into each of their lives and personality.....it is like seeing them anew for just a minute.

Thank you so very much for this!

lol, I was thinking the same thing. That or a lousy shutter speed on the camera.

Is that Dmitri Pavlovich on the far left and GD Michael in the middle next to Alexandra? And I'm guessing that's Dmitri seated on the bench next to Nicholas & Alexei in that other shot. Always a little strange seeing him with the family in 1916 knowing that in just a few months he's going to involve himself in the murder of Rasputin and be much reviled by the IF.

Those photos of OM & TA together are stunning! Should be the front and back covers of a photo album!

I agree.

Thnak you once more, Tatiana, those photos taken along the Dnieper River (and at Stavka -either at Baranovichi or Mogilev) have always been my favourite ones, even since I entered this fandom 8 years ago. That was their last 'imperial' summer.

It's interesting to see more photos of Anastasia from 1916. I have a hard time fixing an image in my head of what she would have looked like as a adult because there are so few photos of her with her hair up compared to her sisters. In 1916, though, she's clearly growing up but not there yet.

That and she seemed to go through so many physical changes in her short seventeen years of existence (no more then about 16 of which do we have much of a photographic record of) that it's harder to predict how, say, the 27-year old Anastasia would have looked than with her sisters.

So many of these photos beg for colorization, but if any of you ladies want to give us all a nice early-Christmas present, please put your skills to work on those O&M and T&A photos hanging out by the Dnieper!

Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: KarinK on November 26, 2013, 11:38:18 AM
Amazing, Tatiana Z!

The biggest surprise is seeing so many captivity photos that are entirely new to me. It's another reminder of how many unseen treasures might be out there; perhaps even photographs from Tobolsk that would show how the children looked in their final months more clearly than the available ones do. I think Tatiana's illness still shows in these photos: she may always have been the slenderest of the sisters, but she doesn't quite look like her 1916 self to me.

Another interesting thing is seeing so many photos of Alexei with the very short haircut. If it's difficult for me to imagine a grown-up Anastasia it's even more difficult with Alexei, but that haircut makes him look a little older than usual. It's like the beginning of the teenage phase that Anastasia at least got to experience.

The Maria photo on the balcony joins the earlier ones of Olga and Tatiana. That's a nice set, a glimpse of their everyday life.

While Nicholas and the girls aren't standing in a perfectly straight line in the 1916 photo, it's still a decent demonstration of what I've read about their heights: Tatiana is as tall as or perhaps even a little bit taller than her father, Maria has grown to be taller than Olga, and Anastasia is clearly the shortest.

Marie photos at this time and later are so rare...stunning . How much does she look like Alexi? Cannot thank you enough for the gold you are showing us with!!!  Imp's smile to her father is a heart stopper... have seen the captivity ones but never with this astonishing clarity!

And that one lovely photo of our Maria - the resemblance between her and Alexei became clearer when Marie ties her hair up, imo! I think it's Anastasia who was taking the photos of OTM in that tea time! But why did Maria frown? xD I also think the one taken of Olga that time was just a stolen shot, while that of Tatiana's was a cutey pose!

Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: matushka on November 27, 2013, 04:48:01 AM
Yes, Grand-Duchess Shandroise (about Anastasia being so pretty), that's why I love so much 1916 picture. They show very grown up grand duchesses, not only grown up, but really mature, different from the past. A turning year in their life and maturation, in my opinion.
Thank you TatianaZ for your answer about general Alexeev.

Backtracking for a moment. The pictures of the family riding on the boat down the Dnieper...Am I right by saying those were preceded by the images captured in the video here? Scroll forward and start watching at the 9:57 mark if you want to see what I'm referring to. Short clip, about 25-seconds...

Tatiana Z, thank you! You've made this a great Romanov week!

It's been fascinating to see the full set of the girls' photos revealed. Discovering that there was an Olga photo that belonged together with Tatiana's, then seeing Maria's, and now the completion with Anastasia. It's a lovely set.

I find the spring/summer 1916 photos so interesting. Maybe it's because even the younger children are starting to grow up and the clothes tend to be simple; it makes me think of what ifs, what if the family had been allowed to try living somewhere quietly and in peace.

Interesting. If OTM were not acounted for, I'd say it could be one of them. From what little of their clothes that's visible ,it looks similar to that of the mystery woman. Or on the analogy of "the fifth Beatle", it could be the last of OTMAN, or OTMAX , or  OTMAS or OTMA?

Though the view is poor and from behind, the woman seems young. Olga's friend Rita ?

Derevenko may indeed have been there. Charlotte Zeepvat's book Romanov Autumn (http://www.alexanderpalace.org/palace/books.html?sku=36) presents evidence to suggest that Vyrubova's story of Derevenko abandoning the imperial family is false.

Really???

The whole story about him turning on Alexei, making him "serve" Derevenko, and then Derevenko jumping ship?

Obviously I need to read Romanov Autumn, but why would Vyrubova make that up?

I don't think it's you. She's at best a dubious source, lacking imagination and perspective on the broader issues, and displaying questionable honesty on those topics relating to more private affairs.

I never really bought into the stories of Derevenko belittling Alexei and then abandoning the imperial family. Not only because it's hard to imagine given his character, but if such acts did take place the way Vyrubova suggests how was she apparently the only witness to them?

Knowing how dunderheaded Anna could be, is it possible that she could actually have been referring to Doctor Derevenko and not Alexei's sailor nanny? Not that the good Doctor's loyalty was ever in question - accompanying the family to Tobolsk and traveling with them to Ekaterinburg - but I can imagine him, perhaps, forgetting his place and lecturing Alexei at one point (stress, irritation, etc). I believe he took up the role of teaching the children science while attending to Alexei's medical needs with Botkin during captivity, yes?

It just sounds like one of those stories that might have gotten mangled. That or the product of a personal vendetta she had against Sailor Derevenko who might have, at one time, argued with or insulted her. If the last part is true it actually improves his reputation in my book. "The Cow" deserved a good scolding!

Indeed Derevenko was there. At 1 July 1917 he was officially appointed as kamerdiner for Alexei Nikolaevitch. How did he behave, I don't know, there are differents accounts, but it's a fact he was there, a least some time. According to Pankratov, the reason why he did not go to Tobolsk is the following. He had to present bills (accounts) of what Alexei expend every month. He wrote Kobylinski that the former Tsetsarevitch used for 700 roubles of boots during one month. It was quite a lot of money and of course false. So he was let in Petrograd and Nagorny went to Tobolsk... and to death. But Derevenko did not give up and was waiting for he would be sent to Siberia, to Alexei. He regularly received letters of Nagorny from Tobolsk and wrote to Mrs Geringer about how are they and about his wish to join them.
So, nothing of a treator, you see.

Post by: Rodney_G. on December 06, 2013, 03:06:49 PM
This is good to read,Matushka. It explains a lot about Derevenko's not going into exile with Alexei and the rest of the IF. And of course, it seems to fully refute any unsubstantiated rumors of Derevenko's disloyalty and desertion. They never made sense and ran counter to all his previous fine service to the family.

Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: Mandie, the Gothic Empress on December 06, 2013, 10:55:56 PM
Anna Vyrubova, imo was lying and clearly dislikes Derevenko.  I have heard of him being rough to the Tsarevich but that only one source - hers, Gibbs and Gillard never mention that in their memoirs.

For her, being immature and kind of stupid, to her people she didn’t like where enemies and ungodly- very narrow minded. I just don’t like her.

As for what really happened, it would never be clear and never know the real truth unless new facts are revealed.

In Tsarskoye Selo, under arrest. Summer 1917.


We were so happy to see this one photo.

http://s019.radikal.ru/i639/1311/03/131281cf2bf5.jpg

For this photo, we can even furnish an exact date: June 27, 1917.

And tell the fascinating story behind it.

That photo also appears in Lili Dehn's book, opposite p. 208. The size there is quite small, and the quality is not the best, so that you can barely make out that it is a little rabbit that the Empress is holding in her hand.

This present copy is much better.

Among the Imperial letters written to Lili Dehn, now kept at the Beinecke Library of Yale University, is a postcard with one large section cut out. The paper now forms an "L" shape. It was only later that we realized what had happened.

The Imperial family pasted a copy of this photo onto a blank postcard which they sent to Lili Dehn. She later cut the photograph off to use as an illustration for her book, and the cut-off piece was never reunited with the rest of the postcard.

Thus, the back side is missing a section of text corresponding to the size of the photograph which was on the front.

But, there was enough left to enable us to reconstruct the full text.

On June 30, 1917, Grand Duchess Maria Nicholaevna wrote to Lili Dehn: "...I took this snapshot in the park three days ago. Mama is holding a little rabbit which Alexis' dog [Joy] almost killed..."

And on June 28, Tsarevich Alexis Nicholaevich himself wrote to his former tutor, P. V. Petrov: "Joy is a murder!!! He strangled two pheasants and a baby rabbit..."

There's also another, slightly different photo (http://i951.photobucket.com/albums/ad357/KarinArt/Romanov/1917NicholasAnastasia1_zpse83e0374.jpg) of that moment.

Tatiana, Anastasia and Olga, 1917

Lovely photos! Especially this, previously I'd only seen a low-quality version where the girls were like white blurs. Here even the photographer's hat is visible at the bottom. I again feel that Tatiana looks the least healthy of the girls.

Photos from the Granger collection.



In the top photo there is of course Derevenko on the left, as well as that woman (nurse/governess)often appearing with the children in photos of that era. Anyone know who she is?

Rodney_G, that is OTMA's and later Aleksei's nanny, Maria Ivanovna Vishnyakova, she was fired by Empress Alexandra, (or simply - she left the Court under suspicious circumnstances) in 1911, after 'having an affair' with Rasputin.

Not sure if this is rare or not:

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-CKCr1O1GvfQ/Uq1XF6lnfdI/AAAAAAAAE2s/39lVFoMq3g8/w679-h509-no/1917+AN+NII+1.jpg)

My guess is Tsarskoye Selo 1917?

I think it's rare to see any photo, that hasn't been cropped, with only one of the Grand Duchesses in it!

Thanks, Nena. I knew of Maria Vishnyakova, and had seen her in several photos, but hadn't connected the name with the face before.

This knowledge wil help me date IF photos in the future.

Tatiana Z, thank you so much for these photos! It's interesting how they add variety to Maria and Anastasia's hospital visits; most photos I've seen before showed them indoors with larger groups of men or were posed more formally. It also feels rare to me to see a wartime photo of Alexandra with all her daughters that wasn't taken at a hospital. And Maria's hat is amazing!

I cannot thank Tatiana Z enough for these precious images. They are so meaningful to us all.  9 times out of 10 I'm very excited by new to me photos...then there is the time when the tragedy of these lost young lives comes to the fore and the feeling is one of  overwhelming  sadness  . Perhaps it's because these are later images when they are on the very threshold of adult life only to be robbed of it. I cannot help but feel the world was robbed as well . They stand for themselves and for millions of others.

So true, Annie. The appearance of these often new-to-me photos by TatianaZ and others prompts those mixed feelings of excitement and simultaneously sadness. I love seeing them but am reminded inevitably of there coming violent end. The paradox of Romanovmania, at least for me, and especially so with OTMAA. But this seemingly never ending string of wonderful  new photos  does keep their image to the fore, for which I'm grateful.

We can see them on their duty, coming to comfort people. We see them not in the palace splendor but ion dirties roads and garden after winter. Those 2 pictures where they are going their way aloung the walls of the fortress especially moved me. And it is interesting to see indoor pictures of this place. Thank you Tatiana, keep posting!!

It's always nice to see White Flower Day photos, and it looks like Alexandra is smiling in this one.

Aloha all!

Once more, thank you a million times Tatiana Z for these amazing photos!  So many new treasures here, each one opening the window just a little more into the lives and personalities of these people that we all are so fascinated by!

Oh, and I hope they are not poking at a frog with their walking sticks, parasols in that one photo!  It doesn't look like they are actually touching it, whatever it might be! 

The one of the Grand Duchesses almost in a stance as if getting ready to run a race is particularly wonderful!

Thank you again!

Tatiana,

Do you happen to know what the object is that Empress Alexandra is holding in her hands in your reply No. 506.

It appears again on the table in front of her in NN. 500 and 522.

At first, I thought it might be a prosphora, but the shape is a bit odd.

When I first looked at this photo, I thought Olga's  right hand was on Tatiana's shoulder, either resting there or restraining T . On a more close viewing, it seems like Olga's hand is just in the air, as she tries to balance. False start indeed!

Post by: edubs31 on February 08, 2014, 09:13:13 PM
Good catch Rodney! I too assume the hand was on Tatiana's shoulder. But upon further review it looks like she is either getting ready to crouch down or standing up from a crouched position and trying to keep her balance (and movements at a minimum) as the picture is about to be taken.

Whoah!!! Could that be 1916 formal photo session? I think that the photo is reverse. Both Maria and Olga look older, as if it was taken even after 1917. (I know it is not, I am just saying that they look older than in 1914 photo session).
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: Ally Kumari on March 17, 2014, 10:24:54 AM
Nena - I think they looked "older" because it seems to be actually a sketch rather than a photo - or perhaps it was heavily retouched. It is definitely from/based on the 1916 session.
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: KarinK on March 17, 2014, 12:03:30 PM
I read on Romanov Russia Today that the author of the book the photo is from (Four Sisters) is not happy that the photo is online before the book has been released, so perhaps all links to it could be removed for now, as a courtesy to her. But if discussion is still alright, I think it's a sign that more photos were taken in the 1916 session than previously known. I've seen low quality formal photos of Olga, Tatiana and Anastasia but none of Maria. This is the first, and it's so unusual for her to be photographed with Olga instead of Anastasia, mixing things up a little.
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: Kassafrass on March 17, 2014, 11:39:27 PM
Karin - No, Helen Rappaport is most definitely NOT happy that this photo is being shared around the net. According to what I heard, someone found it in one of the online previews of Four Sisters and shared it with everyone else. I did not know (and neither did Romanov Russia Today) at the time that it was from Four Sisters or that it was not meant to be shared. I apologize for posting it here... but I had no idea. If it can be removed, that would be good. Although the point is moot at this point. Colorizations of it are already showing up on deviantArt and it's all over Tumblr. The photo is listed in Four Sisters as being a photo belonging to Rappaport herself, which is astonishing and makes you wonder how she got her hands on such a gem! The book also says that it is indeed 1916.

I've long suspected that there were more to the 1916 formal photos. They're out there, waiting to be shown, I'm sure of it.

I must say, however, as unfortunate as this is - I guarantee some people are more inclined to getting this book now.

It was a lovely photo. I can't wait for some time to pass so we can link to it again. I wonder what other new photos Rappaport will have in her book, and if there is a photo of Tatiana and Anastasia existing to go with it.

Wow! People on the net and the buyers of the book may be able to see the photo, but she has the wonderful fortune of owning such a rare and beautiful little piece of history.

Whether other 1916 formals are discovered and released or not, I now feel more free to speculate that such photographs must have been taken. It was reasonable to assume that there was a solo shot of Maria like of the other girls, but after this photo it's fun for me to imagine group shots like in 1914, the big pair and the little pair, and the rare combination of Tatiana and Anastasia.

I'm sure the book will do well. I've noticed that for some time now, each time I've been to Amazon's history section Four Sisters has been listed in future releases; I checked and it's currently #3, the highest I've seen it, and Massie's Nicholas and Alexandra was also in the top ten of best sellers for a long time though it's now fallen outside it. That makes it seem like there is a lot of interest in this topic right now.
Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: grandduchessella on March 18, 2014, 04:32:31 PM
Some of the different combinations of photos from the well-known sessions of 1905, 1913 and 1916 were released in illustrated magazines of the day. I don't know if that's where the image originated or if it is an actual cabinet card/postcard. Russian illustrated magazines are much harder to come by then English and German ones but all of them are wealth of less-common photos or less-common images from well-known sittings. BTW, the book is 54% off for Kindle from amazon. I would snap it up now if I hadn't given up buying any ebooks (a real weakness) for Lent. Hope it doesn't go up in price between now and the end of April!

I think it is 20.05.1916, Tatiana wrote in her diary: "We made photos on the balcony in our lazaret".

Another one... Olga and one of her favorite wounded officers, "little montenegrin" Dhzurkovich. WHAT is he wearing on his eyes??

Thank you, Antonina! These are such beautiful photos of the girls; I love the big pair's dresses. And just when I was wondering where the balcony is, you posted the answer. There was a photo released last year of Alexei on the same balcony that I saw dated 1917, but now I think it must be from a visit to the lazaret in 1916.

I noticed that Maria seems to be present in Olga's photo, you can see someone holding a letter by the doorway. Perhaps she was waiting for her turn to pose.

If it's not a joke, maybe it's something that's meant to let his eyes rest and recover after an injury or exposure to a chemical weapon.

The last and my favorite part. I was wrong, it was Olga who wrote "we have made photos on the balcony" 20 of may 1916. And the same day she wrote: "(In hospital) there was Iedigarov, and about 12 o'clock came Boris Ravtopulo and Mitia. Both with absolutely shaven heads. Awfully well to meet".
I'm sure here we see this day. I waited so long for seeing a bald Mitia))
Here Mitia Shakh-Bagov is rightmost near to Olga, Boris Ravtopulo who was enamoured with Tatiana is near to her, maybe the man in the center is Iedigarov.

Let's thank my friend who is working at GARF... He reads this thread and he is trying to register at APF but for some unknown reason his query isn't accepted yet((


because your friend has not read the instructions in "New Users Read First Please" which require a separate private email to me, with the username registered, so I can know they are not spammers.  We are now getting some 400-500 spam registrations every single day and I have no other way to know who is for real and who wants to spam the forum with pornography links and generic viagra ads...

Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: Forum Admin on March 21, 2014, 09:40:06 PM
I want to remind everyone of the Forum Rules about posting photos.  IF YOU DO NOT OWN THE IMAGE you MUST get permission from the owner to post it here. The mere fact that an image is out there on the internet does NOT give anyone free reign to copy and post the image to our Forum.  The owner of the copyright of the image must give you their permission FIRST.

We have had some instances recently where this has occurred and serious questions about GARF having given their permission to post their photos here have been raised and we simply do not have the answer.

Now that we work closely with the State Museum Preserve Tsarskoye Selo this is not a small deal.  We must respect GARF's ownership and ensure their permission for the photos to be here.

I hope everyone understands and accepts these rules.  Two warnings will be given to violators. Third time is a suspension from the Forum

Thank you for your cooperation.

Post by: Antonina on March 23, 2014, 05:15:04 AM
Ok, we made legal scans of 4 pages from Olga's 1916 album and my friend says he has got a permission and doesn't depart from any rule. But I personally don't contact with GARF, so I can't be 100% sure I do everything right and for the avoidance of misunderstanding I delete these pictures from the APF(((  But if you want to see them please sent me a personal message! I'll be glad to show them)

That pic of Anastasia is the best I've seen of her in terms of capturing her spirit.

Title: Re: Rare Pictures XII
Post by: bongo on April 04, 2014, 12:58:03 PM
I can understand the Forum Admins position given their relationship with GARF.

Personally however I think being precious about historical photos, and copywriting them, is absolute, total, complete BS! Like written texts, photos should not be able to be copyrighted after 50 years. (And as an aside, I think Helen R is being very silly about that photo if she objects to it going online now. It's great PR for her book.)

As an example of the way things are headed, Getty Images have opened up their holdings to linking in the last few weeks.

The Romanov photo albums at Yale have been freely available to all online for years. GARF need to pull their fingers out and make their holdings equally accessible. And even then I doubt they'd serve them up in the wonderful ultra high res versions we've been treated to here.

That said, things aren't going to change over night. So I think it's excellent advice that 'problematic' photos are not embedded here, but posting links to them is surely reasonable. Sharing a link doesn't mean one was the uploader – you're simply flagging that the artefact exists online. If one sought to determine whether every online photo  was under copyright or not, there would hardly be an internet!

The photos of Olga posted on the balcony are very interesting in that it's obvious how much weight she has lost in the time between the time one was taken and the other. The murderers remarked on how thin she was. So clearly the weight loss had begun long before imprisonment. Presumably it was due to nursing work and stress over the course of the War - she would surely have read the papers, even if she hadn't heard the chatter of the St Petersburg drawing rooms.

Post by: edubs31 on May 07, 2014, 08:18:42 AM
I did a double-take on this as well. Olga and Marie appear to be in the exact same pose as the photo we're used to seeing, but I knew right away something didn't fit with Tatiana. Wasn't sure if it was simply an uncropped version of the classic photo or something different, but I realize now the latter!

Great find. Amazing and unique outfits on the GDs! A nice change from the typical white/light dresses and navy blue (I'm guessing) sailor suits we're used to seeing them in. Too bad it was for KR's funeral. One of the most likable Romanovs in my opinion.

This is full regalia Imperial garb...they don't even look like the 20th century ..really a Russian court dress  . Now I know how far down the veil went.
