Not a rare photo,at least can be seen in almost all Russian bios of Empress MF. The source is GARF I think.

Faces of Vladimir




Has anyone else noticed that Vladimir as a young man resembled his nephew Dmitri Pavlovich to an extraordinary degree?

- Somehow there were two "types" among Alexander II's children: the delicate-featured ones (Nikolai, Paul and Serge - though Nikolai did not resemble his brothers particularly) and the coarser-looking Alexnader III, Marie and Alexei. Vladimir came in the middle; you can see his resemblance to both Paul and Alexander. The best-looking of them, I think he was, at least as a youth.

No...I think Boris looked most like him. Dimitri was not as heavy set as Vladimir (more like his father Paul or Uncle Serge).

I can see the resemblance. Jane, in special in the eyes!

Vladimir's daughter Helen also resembled him. That is the reason why there is also a resemblence between Helen and Xenia. ;)

I was thinking of his features rather than his build - the eye and profile (the profile of Nicholas I). I can't see any resemblance at all between Serge and Dmitri.

Hmmm...I get your point. More like bone structure. Vladimir's face filled up quickly just like Alexander III.

This last one must have been taken in Paris, since it's from Atelier Nadar.
