That's actually the best copy I have seen of that picture. Thanks for posting! I hope someone has it bigger.

I know that this won't help, but I have had bigger one -- but I am having horrible troubles while finding it....

Isn't that always the way? Someday I have to organize them!

GrandDuchessIsabelle  a postcard of that photo was available on eBay for some time. But it was not
nearly as nice as what you posted. Now I can tell it's Olga!

Does anyone have this better? I know I've seen it, just don't know where.

Good reproduction--at last.

In the last few years there are literally thousands of royalty photos being posted on the internet that most users have never seen before.

Where are these photographs emanating from?

Something is better than nothing but that said the most important criteria in marketing or presenting historical photographs is CLARITY. Even a photo published ad nauseum increases in value if there is an improvement in sharpness and clarity. Pictures previously unpublished, candids, and unconventional poses are also highly coveted. Unfortunately, the majority of photos reproduced depicting the Russian Royal family are gauze and haze--anything but clear. The photographs taken of Russian peasants in the 19th & early 20th Century are more distinct.

no doubt about it... in a real sense it's almost  diffrent picture  if the clarity is markedly greater imo

I found this on a Russian auction site... some of their captions are not correct.
Is this really Grand Duchess Elena Vladimirovna, later Princess Nicholas of Greece and Denmark?

Yes, that's Elena.
