Maybe the style of painting? It's kind of a watercoloring--sort of impressionist-looking.

Yes, you are probably right. I just thought maybe there was some kind of symbolism in it, or he didnt finish it, since they other Serov paintings I have seen, shows their faces. Im clueless when it comes to art!

Don't speak Russian but I understand this!Yes,is this portrait in this palace!I think I remember the staircase because I was there last year!


Yes, in that "portrait", she is walking down the Jordan Staircase in the Winter Palace. It can still be seen today. I highly doubt that's a real portrait though, for as grandduchessella points out, they only have one person designing the covers of the books. Besides, it really doesn't look very much like a portrait of her or in general.

As for no faces in that painting, it's probably just for effect. Gives more impact and makes it more unique. It might have also been too difficult to paint all of their faces in such a close proximity.

Dear Kmerov,

I have an old postcard of the picture of Nicholas being anointed at his coronation, and his face is very distinct,  the others more so.

Maybe the one you posted was the work in progress?
Wish my scanner was working  :-/

Many thanks for the wonderful pictures  :) Had never seen the lovely one of Olga in later life.

Sunny

Does anyone have a picture of the painting of the Grand Dukes Serge,Paul and Nicholas that is in the current Nicholas and Alexandra exhibit?

I saw the exhibit in Cincy yesterday,it was fabulous btw,and I saw this painting and was just amazed at the detail.

Yes, Merrique, I know the one you are talking about.  This same question was posted on the exhibit thread, but so far no one has found it, or posted it.  Unfortunately, I don't have it, but would like to see it posted as well. :)

The protrait of Nicky does look like and enlargement but notice the epaulets have the cipher of Alexander III Nicholas's Father placing the potrait at 1896 or less. My guess is the festivities are for Nicholas's coronation

But how would a hard-working peasant woman have gotten herself so close to the Imperial children.  I thought the secret service kept everybody away?  

Not in this case - but they surely stayed alert. See a cossack bodyguard at the left?

It's not always possible to capture ones features perfectly when drawing, and especially when painting. Whenever I see a painting or drawing of someone, I have to remind myself that they probably didn't look exactly like the work. For example, paintings of Queen Victoria in her early years don't really look like her when comparing to her pictures from the same years.

1897, Tatiana's Baptism




y'know, i'm not completely sure but i think there's something significantly wrong with that illustration.....

the woman holding the infant Tatiana, is shown wearing the gold velvet mantle (w/ Romanov double-headed eagle, in black) worn, i believe, during the coronation ceremony....but thereby implying it's the empress Aleksandra, the infants mother.    

my main question:  i seem to remember something about the fact that an infant's parents are never present at, or any time during, a Russian Orthadox Christening.    

or am i mistaken?    (perhaps, it was just a tradition within the imperial family?)

You know it WAS a tradition that parents --in general , mother of a child -- are never present at the christening...though I saw a painting of Nikolay II's christening and Maria Fedorovna was shown in the picture  ???

Sarushka, where did you find the third image (left to right)? I saw it once hanging on the wall of a German family in the south of Brazil (they were here ever since before the Great War), next to many of Kaiser Wilhelm II, Empress Augusta Viktoria, Queen Victoria, etc. It's a really nice picture =)

Just about all of the pictures I posted came from Laura Mabee. If you PM her, she might be able to tell you where she found the one you're interested in.

Some of those are a bit on the romanticized side, but it is defintely interesting seeing them. I think they have varying degrees of accuracy. Before this thread, I had no idea that there were so many non picture depictions of them. That one of Marie with the blonde hair I've seen before, but indeed, it doesn't look anything like her. She didn't even really have blonde hair as a little girl, I don't think. She was defintely brunette later. It looks like someone had an idea of what she looked like from a picture and then painted this. The dress she is wearing is certainly one she was wearing in photos of the time. Does anyone have more background on this picture?

I think that's very true. But it occurrs to me that the Faberge portraits might be the most likely to be accurate, particularly in terms of *color.* I would think that given Faberge's renowned attention to detail, they would have made a conscious effort to correctly portray the children's hair and eye color.  8) (Too bad those portraits are so teensy!)

Post by: imperial angel on December 20, 2006, 12:26:25 PM
Yes, that is true! I agree with you. Were these images produced mostly in Russia at the orders of the dynasty, or were they more unauthorized? I think some of them are not images that would have officially approved of, they are inaccurate in some respects. The last one shows them in formal dress in the Crimea, in their palace by the sea, Livadia.They are dressed as they were for the 1910 formal pictures, a juxatposition that is certainly interesting. Some of these pictures display very interesting takes on settings and clothes. There should be more books about these types of depictions, I have never read much, and I've read pretty much every Romanov book on the planet.

You're absolutely right. A great many of these drawings are modeled after photos and cobbled into a semi-original composition.

And I found the anwser!
It's Pietro Canonica, an Italina sculptor. Here is his museum, at the Villa Borghse in Roma. http://en.museocanonica.it/

And as specila bonus:
Alix 1910, (http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/6597/canonico1910sj5.th.jpg) (http://img262.imageshack.us/my.php?image=canonico1910sj5.jpg)

There are picture by Kaulbach that were hanging on the wall in ALexander palace. The first one is Olga, other two I´ve always seen lablled as Maria (and they sure both lok like her), but looking at the actual photo of the room they were in, I´m wondering if the girl with long hair could be Tatiana. You can see portrait of Tsar, Alexei, Olga, Maria, Anastasia - so why would there be two Maria´s and no Tatiana (the portrait look s nothing like her though....)?

That's a great one - where did you find it?
It's the closest I've seen (and is obviously from the same session) to one which is hanging at Broadlands and which I've never seen in a book and is my favourite of the child Alix. In that one she is wearing identical clothes, but is smiling. I think they all done at the time of the vast 1875 or 6 portrait of QV's family, as well as the famous photos of Princess Alice's family (Ernie in kilt etc).

Czar Nicholas II Colonel in Chief, Royal Scots Greys

Colonel in Chief of the regiment at the time of his murder by the communists in 1917, hence his Scots Greys uniform. In the Officers' Mess, Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (Carabiniers and Greys) The Imperial Russian anthem is still palyed at dinner nights.

Here's the info I have about Ekaterina Nikiporenko:

Quote
Ekaterina Nikiporenko was another child prodigy produced in the tradition of so many St. Petersburg artists. She entered the St. Petersburg State Art Lyceum of Art (The St. Petersburg Junior Academy of Arts) and graduated with the highest honors in 1973. Ekaterina was selected to attend the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts and she studied in the prestigious Painting Faculty, Portrait Studio, under the personal tutelage of Russian National artist, V.M. Oreshnikov. After a five year course in which Ekaterina earned her High Diploma at the Academy, Ekaterina demonstrated such a rare talent as a portrait artist, she was given three additional years of post graduate study at the Russian Academy and was allowed to study abroad in Italy from 1979 until 1982.

She was honored to have been chosen to teach at the Junior Academy of Arts in 1983 and for the past seventeen years she has served as the manager of Art instruction. Her works have been exhibited all over Russia in countless exhibitions. She is most famous for her portraits in the Serov style and her paintings are in private collections in Finland, Italy, Germany, England, and the United States.

Ekaterina Nikiporenko has been commissioned to paint numerous paintings for M&M Art Ltd. customers over the past several years. Each effort has been a tremendous success and she is equally adept at painting individual or family portraits. She works in pastels as well as oils. References are available upon request. As with any M&M artist, her work is guaranteed. She accepts commissions of any kind and will be doing a personal exhibit in the United States in the summer of 2000.

I have a question. In the Eurohistory book about the GDs it states on page 159, the memories of the American travel writer Ruth Kedzie Wood about having visited the Alexander Palace where a French artist was going to draw OTMA, and GD Elizabeth was also there.This was before World War I. Kedzie Wood's book was published in 1911, but I don't have a copy of her book so I'm not sure she named the artist. The artist isn't named in the Eurohistory essay on the GDs. Anyone have any idea which drawing of the girls this would be?

It's weird...In the painting of Romanovs before their MURDER (not execution...that's a bitter euphemism I've nerev  liked) The girls and the doctor seems to be wearing clothes from 1850's 60's years and not from 1918...What do you think of it?

I thought that was a bit strange too. Alexandra's also looks like she's wearing a dress from the 1890's?  Maybe it's just the way the artist perceived the moment? Or mabey he just put less effort onto the fashion side of the painting?

Agree with you...it don't looks like Maria at all in my opinion, however it's a nice portrait, I like the style of Konstantin Makovsky...if I recall correctly, he is the author of a very famous portrait of Nicholas II on horseback too, right?

EDIT: I have to do a correction to my post - the famous portrait of Tsar Nicholas II on horseback (in hussar uniform?) is a work of A.V. Makovsky, not K. Makovsky.

Post by: RomanovsFan4Ever on November 04, 2009, 08:55:26 AM
I have to agree too...considering that the Romanovs were proclaimed Saints in 2000, the correct time should be indeed not before 2000.
1980s it's indeed too early for a portrait like that one, I was confused by the style of the portrait (that actually it's not exactly a portrait maybe).

And also, FOOL THAT I AM! (It's my motto  :)), 1980s was the last period of the Soviet Union, are there portraits of the Romanovs from the Soviet time?...

I am completely agreed. I have unmarked one, here is:

Will try however to find out who had done this beautiful piece of art. I am pretty sure that interior matches to be Governor's Mansion hall in Tobolsk. It can be Ipatiev House as well, but to me looks like to be Governor's Mansion.

Thanks for the information. I hope they offer postcards or posters on this lovely image. It would fit well into a chapel or church.

The image of Olga & Tatiana also came from a photo.

It stuck me as the moment  family went to thier knees when the prayers for the dead were read...a day or so before
the murders...which surprised the priest greatly .

A prelude of what to come.

Indeed. The commandant, Yurovsky, was there during the service to see that no communication took place between the family
and the clergy. But he did not know the family's action of dropping to thier knees when the prayers for the dead
were read was a deviation in the service. That went by him. It did not pass by the priest. He was shocked.
So communication, of a deep sort, indeed happened.

I believe you are right and it seems Alexandra was first perhaps when the images were together
because the artist's signature is on Nicky's picture on the right hand bottom and they would be turned towards each other that way

I went back to the auction and it says

2 antique coloured postcards of tsar Nicholas II. of Russia (1868-1918) and his wife, the tsarina Alix or Alexandra Romanova (1872-1918), born as a Princess of Hesse and by Rhine, published by the Russian Red Cross in the 1890s.

I believe they had a big one in Alexi's playroom and the girls would move thier camp beds in there to fall asleep while looking at it ...there's cute Olga antidote where once when the girls were little , Alexandra was dressed in state robes,  jewels, crown,  the whole bit and after the girls circled around her in awe, Olga said " Oh Mama! You look just like a beautiful  Christmas tree! "
I wonder if there's a higher complement? Certainly not from a child! lol!

Here is an interesting item. A medal of Nicholas and Alexandra made in 1896 to commemorate thier state visit to France. Very nicely made and a good portrait of both.  What stuck me was the remarkable similarity between the Czar's profile in this medal and Olga N.'s profile in the famous 1906 picture of the girls. Of the girls, Olga indeed looked the most like him.

lol! Indeed. Sometimes the idea is to remove the sitters personal traits rather than express them...often in children's portraits, an ideal is painted rather than the being before them...and if Ally is correct and this painting was done by looking at photos, then the chances of this happening are even greater. imo opinon as well, it doesn't look like Maria. But of equal importance, it does not strike one as Maria. A good portrait will reveal something of the sitter, whether you know them personally or not.

Wonderful picture! I wonder if it's a meeting with members of the Czar's family...or even his mother etc? Because the two women in the foreground seem to have a Cossack escort and another woman is being approached by one of the girls as if she knows her. It's a remarkable casual pose and that supports Eric's suggestion it's based on a photo. Nice! Thanks for posting it!

oh you are right! It does look like she  is curtsying to the lady!  I wonder if this is the IF  and court waiting to receive someone else. ( Willy?) and the story of the picture  is about Olga " breaking ranks" and doing something spontaneous on her own. I suggest this because the other GD  and the couple with her are faced the other way. Whatever the story, it's very chraming!

I have wondered about that as well. It could have been the policy because one never sees an official portrait that isn't unsmiling..  And it's unfortunate because when she smiles, one sees why she was called  "Sunny". Perhaps it wasn't unconsidered dignified?

The pics are in a Faberge picture frame that was bought by Mrs. Post. I scanned it from a book since I recalled it was posted before but it was such a small size and posters were wishing that it was more bigger. You're welcome and I finally found a way to make the OTM pic bigger as well. I'm glad you enjoyed my posting.

Of course Dagmar MUST be portrayed along with Nicholas, since she still was the Empress. The "Widow Empress", the ""Mother Empress", that's right. But she must appear along with Alix , under Nicholas imagen...I don't know if it was O.K that  Dowager Empess must be painted at the same level than Alix, but she couldn't be represented among the dead Czars that are under them (Alexander II and Alexander III).

I don't like this painting anyway...the persons on it seems to be too much static and their features are somewhat hard, not very pleasant...

To me the "dead czars" look like Grand Dukes Vladimir and Alexei Alexandrovich. The text under them is too small to read.

Re: Reply # 145 and the "Dead Czars:"    "Kmerov," you are absolutely correct!  I know for certainty that the identity of the two lower Romanovs has been discussed previously on this Forum, because I remember helping identify them and remarking on the unusual voice tones of the Grand Duke Vladimir. Thus, these illustrations are NOT Alexander II or Alexander III.  The two were sons of Alexander II, brothers to Alexander III, and uncles of Nicholas II.  Grand Duke Alexei A. is depicted in his naval uniform. Both were very "colorful" characters in their own ways.  Regards,  AP.

As an addendum to my reply # 146 (above), I did a bit of enhanced research and found that the correct answer to the original question as to the identity of the two lower Romanovs in question was given on March, 26, 2009 as Reply # 420, et seq. in "Just Put It Out There.....Romanov Style."  At that time they were also incorrectly postulated to be "Alexander II " (left) and "Alexander III (right). Again, we now know their true identities.,  AP

Who are all those young women dressed in gauzy white gowns? I thought some of them, well, four, to be precise, might be OTMA, but the event took place in 1899, so of course that couldn't be. And who is the man with the light blue sash next to Alix? And, (sorry for all the questions!) where is the bridge? I don't see anything that might resemble one. And--one more thing!-- why is there something that looks like a Christmas tree at the left?
Sorry again for all the questions!

Hi,

Don't be sorry for asking questions - that is one of the only ways to educate yourself....

The Alexander III Bridge is in Paris and is quite ornate;  a beautiful bridge IMO!!!
The man in the blue sash could be the President of France - just my guess....

I don't think that the painter put much intention in hair colour and features. Its mostly some kind of "height is age" because they often put the eldest one as the tallest and arrange the others in order of their age. So I would think its Olga and maybe she is looking at the sky because she was the only one (besides her father) who knew that a horrible end will come. Even her mother did not reckon that maybe thats why she and her other daughters are still praying, believing in god and in a good end....just my interpretation ;)

The coronation of the Tsar!?
The dress Alix is wearing looks like a day dress, or something like that, not at all like her coronation ensamble. And the setting is wrong, too, it looks like it's some kind of little party with a bunch of generals, or they're welcoming visitors or something like that, not at all like a coronation.

It could easily have been  at one of the many receptions at the coronation, before and after the  Coronation it self. She would not have worn he coronation outfit for those. Way too cumbersome.
 It was a struggle just to get down the stairs from the palace, across the little square and into the church. Stand for hours, then make the reverse journey back to the palace.  What stamina...

Re Reply #211:  Undoubtedly based on a well-known series of interior-posed photographs taken at a session (both seated and standing) in his earlier years.  Same outfit, hat, etc. in white and gold.  One of the photos shows him "saluting." ( I  also seem to remember at least one other of him in this same outfit that was taken within a grouping out-of-doors, as well.) There were apparently several such outfits made for him, as I have personally seen another one on exhibition (tunic/shirt and shorts) some years ago that was in dark blue with gold embroidery.  In this illustration in Reply #211, the small figure on horseback with a standard/banner at lower left, is obviously NOT part of the outfit's decoration.    AP.

That one is remake of the photo, and was taken at Yalta, Crimea, during the 'White Flower' festivity/bazaars organized by Empress in the springs of 1912 and 1914.

I think the artist painted him as more typically Russian-looking than he actually was. His looks here remind me of Felix Yussupov.

Speaking as an artist who uses photos, I can guarantee the artist  of that painting used this photo of Alexei as his model ....but the artist  did indeed altered the heir's features and even the shape of his head! Alexei seems like a little man in that painting rather than a young boy.

I have seen these images drawn on an etching of  this Valentin Alexandrovich Serov  portrait of Nicholas ....which the artist drew himself along the edge of the print . This is the portrait...but there was an etching made of it which had a good amount of paper around it  and that's where these sketches  of the children were drawn .

This topic now what's remained of those numeruos Portraits of the Romanovs 1,2,3,4 with their endless repeat of the same portraits.

Since almost every Romanov now has its own topic, and some of them have their own subForums with essential topic "portraits and paintings", so please post the portraits of various non-NAOTMAA in the proper subForums and topics. It's easier to find a portrait in the proper place than to wander around the Forum hoping to dig out something.

Here's the place for NAOTMAA's portraits, paintings, reproductions and illustrations. Not photos, please!
And frankly speaking every portrait from here had been posted at NAOTMAA's subforums, sometimes not once. Before posting here, think twice, please, and check out the previous pages. Thanks in advance.

Thanks! The artist has a certain style...and yet has caught a good deal of Maria even so. Sometimes  an artists style can prevent a good likeness. The subject winds up looking like all the artist's other portraits . But not here . While she was painted in their style...Marie is peeking though as well imo . I can tell they really looked at Marie's photo  in order to paint this.

Interesting. I was wondering if they are being arranged for a formal photo, listening to the photographer's  suggestions etc.   It's remarkable how Zichy caught good likeness in just a few strokes...even typical postures! ....such as TN's tentativeness at this time.

Re Reply/comment # 495:  Yes, you are correct, "historyfan."  Queen Victoria personally commented on that feature:  "Such a large head!"  IMO, it was THE singularly prominent and unattractive feature of the Grandduchess Olga N.  The dominant width and depth (of the seemingly at times "square" head) especially of the forehead, is particularly prominent in her baby/early photos, resulting in "squinching" together the eyes, nose and mouth.  As she grew older, IMO, her hair styles continued to show, even emphasize, the disparity of the head.  Wearing a thin encircling ribbon as a bandeau merely outlined the apparent larger circumference, as did the famous "shaven-head" photos. Not having the skull circumference measurements at hand, I do not know if she technically qualified for the term "macrocephallic."    AP.
Title: Re: Portraits, paintings,illustrations of NAOTMAA
Post by: blessOTMA on April 15, 2011, 04:14:50 PM
And yet Olga N  was always beautiful. To me it simply made her stand out.  If it was just her forehead, that would be one thing. But her forehead is supported by ample cheek and chin structure as well . I say that having carefully studied her head and face and how it all connects  in order to paint her image  ... Certainly Olga's amazing blue eyes were never over shadowed...imo
Title: Re: Portraits, paintings,illustrations of NAOTMAA
Post by: aleksandr pavlovich on April 15, 2011, 05:17:11 PM
  Thanks for your opinion.  IMO, paintings DO tend to be idealized, consciously or unconsciously, by virture of light/angle modeling, one's own interpretatation, potential admiration for the subject (possibly downright flattery), etc., with the opportunity of endless re-doings, even if one is simply copying a photo in oils, etc.  Not to mention MONEY/renown, if one is comissioned for such.  
  IMO, the camera does not hide a conspicuously large fault, unless the subject/setting is manipulated with aforethought or thereafter (air brushing, ie the actual "cleft" between the Duchess of Windsor's eyes, et al).
  In the standard b/w photos of the Imperial period, the "romanticized" color effect of one's eyes is not a factor.   Regards,  AP.

Post by: blessOTMA on April 16, 2011, 01:40:20 PM
aleksandr pavlovich , you make valid points about painting and portraits. That's the advantage of having a subject that has passed on almost a century ago...the artist need only satisfy themselves, not the patron! lol!  A wise artist will thoroughly study reality even if and perhaps particularly if they wish to conceal it...in my case if I didn't do exactly as the photo says to the best of my ability, I couldn't get a likeness . Besides that , what is interesting  is,  I find  a painting of a photo exactly  as it is, is still something else again. It's not a copy, but an interpretation.  Perhaps it's the addition of the human hand...and also our eyes focus differently than  the camera lens does...

A page back someone wrote "The rules may be diferent in different branches of Orthodoxy." about parents attending the Baptism of their child. Does anyone know the dates of the baptisms where the parents weren't there in relation to the birthdate of the child. If the baptism was within 40 days of the child being born, then the mother could not go to Church. A mother is "churched" 40 days after childbirth - the first time she can go back into Church. Maybe that is why Alexandra wasn't present, and therefore, maybe the tsar also stayed away.

Umm . . . I'm really no help with the artist name, but if I had to guess when it was painted: It was probably based sometime near the coronation or the wedding - considering Alexandra's crown. I'm guessing about, say, 1894-1896? Of course, I'm not the most knowledgable on this subject, but Sarushka or Holly might know. I'd ask one of them if you don't think mine is correct.

  "sbl11":  I have never before seen this illustration.  IMO, I do not find it impressive regarding the subjects' features. In fact, it reminds me of potentially being a composite painting using two separate photographs/portraits as "models" to create one canvas.  The utilization of the ceremonial-type "candlestick" apparently is meant to convey a religious setting or a "regal" setting (though a tiara rather than a "crown" per se is depicted).
               Perhaps it would help to know where this painting is presently located. Have you this information?    Regards,  AP.

imho, it was based on 1906 formal photo of Alexandra(from opening of the Duma)->click! (http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2011/206/5/2/alix_in_1906_redo_by_alixofhesse-d41knft.png)(sorry I don't have b&w)

like AP said it looks as it was based from two different formal pictures.

 Thank you for your most prompt reply!  Oddly enough, I know of a dealer in imported (and relatively new) Russian "historically-related" paintings, etc., in the USA state of South Carolina, but I will of course not inquire if the present owner is he!  Many thanks again!  Regards,   AP.

The painting actually came out of Delaware, and I am just doing research on who could possibly have painted it, and if it is worth any considerable amount of money. He is not very interested in selling this painting, because he really likes it in his bar surrounded by Russian Vodka. It is oil on canvas, and is 95x112cm. I think he did well in his purchase, but price really means little to him because he had to have it. I also agree, it isn't that great of a representation of Alexandra, but Nicholas seems to be fairly well done.

  Thank you for the amplified information on the oil painting.  Parenthetically, I would have no idea of what the value would be, but then what is the value of anything?  Simply what a person wishes to pay (and that drives auctions!).  If your friend likes it, that is REALLY the important thing!

it looks like the painting is base off a book cover of a "Nicholas and Alexandra" by Robert Massie. the book was published many times since the 60s.

  Good call!  This observation DOES, IMO, put us a little closer to the composite origin.  While, IMO, the Empress is undoubtedly based on the well-known photograph, it is my opinion that the figure of the Emperor is imitated from another, separate photograph/painting. That certainly seems to be the consenus here at present.  
  Strangely, the Emperor is USUALLY depicted on formal-dress occasions with the blue ribband of the (highest) Russian Order of Saint Andrew, but in the Massie cover AND in the present painting under discussion, he is shown wearing a RED ribband. It shows no border, IMO thus ruling out the Russian Order of St. Vladimir.  Also his decorations look a bit askew to me, both on Massie and the painting here (but I cannot rule out "artistic license"). Thus, the Massie cover and the present painting here seem obviously linked, again, in my estimation.
  Question:  I do not own a copy (hardback/paperback) of the Massie volume, but USUALLY credit is given to the origin (potentially of the artist) of the front cover illustration of a volume.  Perhaps on the inner end wrapper of the hardback, or on the back cover of a paperback, there will be a credit. Is one shown/given?                                                                                                                     Regards,  AP.
Title: Re: Portraits, paintings,illustrations of NAOTMAA
Post by: aleksandr pavlovich on July 25, 2011, 09:43:24 PM
  One further specific similiarity in the Massie volume's cover and the painting under discussion: In both, the Emperor is wearing a neck-decoration, the design of which I do not recognize as of Imperial Russian issue. I would almost characterize it as similiar to the very distinguished Royal Victorian CHAIN (which is not part of the Royal Victorian Order).The British King Edward VII initiated this in 1902, as "a token of the highest distinction and special esteem on the part of The Sovereign."
  Therefore with that decoration, the red riband of another order, its placement, and, IMO, the star of the highest Russian Order of Saint Andrew the First Called being placed at the LOWEST point (as it appears under magnification, with the highest appearing to be the Order of the Garter) of the three breast stars, it would seem that the photo/portrait used of the Emperor would show him originally depicted wearing the honors of another country that he was either officially visiting, OR in honor of receiving a head of state that had awarded the honors.
  Again, we must note that more than occasionally, an artist would confuse the issue/s in depiction/placement as in "Artist License," but in these two instances, the neck-decoration relationship remains static.  
  Unfortunately, I too, cannot determine the signature of the artist.                                                  Regards,  AP.

Portrait of Nicholas II (1894-1917) – the last Czar
(http://www.library.yale.edu/slavic/coins/images/portraits/Nicholas2.jpg)

Anyone knows who was the artist?  :-/

This portrait is featured in the large-format book: Albom istorii Derzhavy Rossiiskoy, published by the Russian Orthodox Youth Committee of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, New York, 1971, p. 474.

It fills an entire page, but, unfortunately, the artist's name is not given there.
Title: Re: Portraits, paintings,illustrations of NAOTMAA
Post by: Inok Nikolai on May 02, 2012, 08:10:25 PM
Thank you so much Sarushka! I had hardly seen any of those. Here are two more:

(http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e182/aussiechick12/Portraits/th_portraitofNicholasIIsfamily.jpg) (http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e182/aussiechick12/Portraits/portraitofNicholasIIsfamily.jpg)  


Obviously there is more than one such print in existence of these portraits, but most likely that first one was brought to recent popular attention by our monastery.
We have an original lithographic color print of that portrait hanging here on the wall. We received it in 1983 from Fr. Modest, the priest-monk and spiritual father at the Russian Orthodox Convent of the Ascension, on the Mount of Olives, in Jerusalem, where Matushka Tamara (née Princess Tatiana Constantinovna) was Abbess for so many years.

It is featured on our web-site: http://www.thehtm.org/catalog/images/A293.jpg

The colors are much more true in this smaller copy here above at reply No. 71:
http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=2631.msg233108#msg233108

The version at reply No. 76 is larger, but more garish:
http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=2631.msg236875#msg236875

Dominic Lieven used it as the front cover illustration for the original British edition of his excellent biography of Tsar Nicholas II.

We happened to give a copy to Mr. Alexander Avdonin in Ekaterinburg, the man who discovered the Imperial family's remains, and he printed it on the back cover of his annual lecture series: "Romanov Readings", No. 2, 1997.
At that time we had no idea who the artist was.

Then V. F. Gladyshev, of Perm, recognized it as the work of a local artist from Perm, and he contacted Mr. Avdonin to inform him of that fact.

For the "Eighth Romanov Readings" Mr. Gladyshev submitted a brief biography of the artist and a discussion of how the painting came to be made.
(See: Vosmye Romanovskie Chteniya, Fond Obretenie, Ekaterinburg, 2004, pp. 85–90.)

The artist's name was A. N. Zelenin, and he painted the portrait in 1913.

It's one of my favorite depictions of the Imperial family, mostly because it looks so natural, and not too studied.

The Empress, dressed quite smartly, has a somewhat pained or frustrated expression on her face — as might be expected from a mother of five lively children. One can almost hear her saying: "What am I supposed to do with these kids? I told them that we had this sitting today for a portrait!"

The Grand Duchesses look like they have just come in from playing tag, or hide and seek — with their hair all mussed up.
(One older, upper class Russian lady we know said that her mother would have killed her if she had shown up like that for a formal picture!)

Tsarevich Alexis' expression shows quite clearly that he knows that he is everyone's little darling.

And Tsar Nicholas II has the placid and serene gaze of an understanding and loving father.

(As I said, I like that picture!)

One more portrait of the Imperial family which you probably have not seen before.

(http://i1064.photobucket.com/albums/u368/InokNikolai/Royal%20Martyrs/th_Family.jpg) (http://s1064.photobucket.com/albums/u368/InokNikolai/Royal%20Martyrs/?action=view&current=Family.jpg)

It was done by  Sergei Danilin, a modern Russian portrait painter from St. Petersburg.
http://sergeidanilin.com

Actually, it was through this painting that we came to meet him. We have know him now for over twenty years.
http://sergeidanilin.com/Paintings/Portraits/files/The%20Family.jpg

The amazing thing about this painting is that it was the very first portrait of the Imperial family to be painted and publicly exhibited inside Russia since the Revolution!

Sergei Danilin painted it in 1990, before the fall of Communism and the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The picture is entitled simply “The Family”, and is dedicated to the family of the last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II. For two years, this painting hung in the “Exhibition of One Painting” in the museum of the town of Pushkin [Tsarskoe Selo]. The work was well known in Russian cultural circles and became the symbol of the World Wide Tsarskoe Selo Romanov Foundation, which was established in Pushkin. As co-founder of this Foundation, Mr. Danilin was invited to the United States in 1991 by the activists among the Russian and Cossack émigrés. Ever since then he has been working several months out of the year in the USA.

At the time that the portrait was painted, there were fears for Mr. Danilin's safety, so a producer in St. Petersburg made a short film concerning the painting and its author — in order to give Sergei more public exposure, and to make it more difficult for the authorities to harass him over it.

Here is a link to that film:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBeLJB6kcGg

Here is a synopsis in English of the sound track of the film:
http://www.saintannas.com/Archived_Docs_HTM/VenetsSoundTrackForAPF.pdf

Unfortunately, in 1994, Mr. Danilin’s studio in St. Petersburg was robbed and set on fire. A great series of paintings and portraits of contemporary figures in Russian culture were lost in the flames, including the portrait of the Imperial family.

I was thinking the same. Georgiy, do you think it could be his first Confession? It's clear to me that Orthodox people give Batptism, Communion & Confirmation all in one day when the children are babies, but i've not fully undertood if they wait that the children are grown up for Confession... since i'm Catholic and we do otherwise, i'ma bit confused.

Well it's something important . It might be Communion for all , as they all seem lined up to receive it and in the usual order. Looking at it now, I would say the Tsar has had his Communion and is standing back as the others ( in the order of importance ) receive theirs....it could be a depiction of the way the family  took  Communion generally , while  highlighting Alexis

  To me it looks like the Tsar  has already taken Communion and now the others will...starting with Alexei . It's interesting what you say about  the lack of hair covering for the females. This might be another case of a non Orthodox artist's work, perhaps for a newspaper etc.  There is a print of Olga's baptism that shows her parents there, holding her  and it seems in reality they would not be present .

But the portait of this group I have always known as Marie, has a merrier expression  and this one has an ironic slant ...both  seem quite characteristic if this was indeed Olga and the other was Marie lol!  Perhaps size is the only way to decied it , if the Small Pair indeed had smaller portaits

I happen to own a set of five antique Hanfstaengl reproductions of these portraits, each labeled at the back. (A complete set, except for the portrait of one of the younger girls.)
In this set, the "portrait of a young girl" shown at http://iamachild.wordpress.com/category/kaulbach-friedrich-august-von/ is labeled on the back as Olga, not Tatiana. The one labeled as Tatiana shows a girl wearing a sailor type of cap.
You can find pictures of both portraits in "The Correspondence of the Empress Alexandra of Russia with Ernst Ludwig and Eleonore, Grand Duke and Duchess of Hesse".  
The portraits of Maria and Anastasia are indeed smaller in size. The girls also look considerably younger than Olga and Tatiana, both in their appearances and in their dresses.

Mr. Babailov did a wonderful job!

Olga's face does look off but I think what makes it look so off to me is that he softened her expression when I'm so use to seeing her look more serious. I know not all of her pictures are like that but that's how I think of her. The expression almost feels more Maria like.

Tatiana and Maria look gorgeous and Alexei looks spot on. Also in my opinion similar to how Winterhalter would beautify his subjects Anastasia looks a bit idealized.

The more I look at these the more impressed I am. The Olga picture is nice, it just doesn't quite reflect her accurately. T, M and Alexei are pretty perfect. I guess Tatiana's nose appears slightly different in this photo than her actual profile. The same can be said for Anastasia...a slight alteration that, as Maria Sisi points out, helps idealize & beautify her somewhat. That said I feel like the eyes, mouth region and overall shape of her face is perfect. Very nicely done all in all!

While examining the Wild Pansy flower study given by Nicholas to Alexandra on their 10th wedding anniversary (1904), I noticed that Faberge based his miniatures of the Grand Duchesses on drawings done by Kaulbach. Alexei is also included--does anyone know if the miniature of him is based on a Kaulbach drawing as well? I have never come across/seen such a work, but would appreciate other people's thoughts/insights.

You can see the flower here:

I'd like to see you color in that last one Ally. Maybe Paint Shop, or colored pencils?

I must admit I did think about colouring it, but then I realized there is nothing to colour. At least in my case, the colour magic happens thanks to the grey shades in a photo, but there are none here.

I am not sure if this is a magazine or a souvenir poster or what.....

Quite kitsch, but, coming from the Russian occupation authorities in Crimea, it would be stupid to expect better taste. I suppose that, following the official line in Russian historiography, the portrait will be part of a gallery of "great leaders", which will include Joseph Stalin (who carved up half of Europe at that palace during the Yalta Conference) and current President of the Russian Federation, former chekist, Vladimir Putin.
