To me she looks much like Queen Alexandra (another "Alix"). But this is most definitely not Princess Alix of Hesse!

Yes...This was exactly what I was thinking about...But goingo to the link posted above, it seems that the artist wanted to portray Alix of Hesse...In my modets opinion, he failed to do so.

Yup, i think that too. But he did a wonderful work with Alix┬┤s  Father and brother!

I would have said the the clothing and the honors were wrong for Alix of Hesse as well.

This woman looks to be in deep mourning and wearing honors that look more British.

If he truly thought that Alix looked like that, I guess it is his opinion, but if this painting was done in 1889, who was she in deep mourning for?

She would have only been 17.  That women looks far to old to be Alix at 17 and as yet unmarried and living at home.

In 1889 Alix, Princess of Wales would have been in deep mourning for her son Prince Albert Victor, but Alix of Hesse as a cousin would not have been in "deep"mourning.

So was the photo session of the Empress in 1906 taken after the Opening of the Duma?

Where is the Empress supposed to be at? It looks like a little Russian cottage for some reason...

Well, the painters or illustartors (depending the case) frequently took some liberties when they made their work, I wouldn't be surprised of this. But yes, it looks like some kind of cottage made in Russian style, sorry the source didn't add much information.

From a Russian site, Empress Alexandra (seems to be inspired on her photos at the Romanov Ball of 1903) watercolor
