Funny, you say that Eric, I was just thinking that the dog in the picture looked a little heavy ::) You know how they say that pets take after their owners ::)

Hi,

Wasn't it a sign of prosperity and upper-class to be rotund?  Rubenesque?
At one time, if you were skinny or thin, you were thought to be poor.  Was this the case in late 19th century Europe still?

Wonderful image!

At the very left standing is GD Andrey Vladimirovich - he plays a Turk definitely. In front of Elena Vladimirovna is her husband Prince Nikolaos of Greece.

Don’t know, normally when parties are held in court, photos of the host or hostess sets (normally in the center) surrounded by their guests. it a possibility at one of the Imperial Dukes houses. The Vladimirs are very well known to be partiers.  ;)

I think the man in the blanket on the floor is Grand Duke Sergei Mikailovich. I also think also the man in the far back in a white hat (next to the painting) is Prince Christopher of Greece??????

I think he looks like GD Boris Vladimirovich, but I am not sure exactly.
