Re: Kaulbach portraits in the Maple Room

Here is a picture taken after the family's death, probably when the palace was a museum.

Here's information from the main site about them:

They followed the family into exile in Siberia in 1917 and some returned to the palace after the murder of the Romanovs. Later they were sold by the Soviet Government to finance the clandestine Soviet sponsorship of foreign communist and leftist parties during the 30's. These pictures ultimately passed through the antique dealer A La Vieille Russie in New York in the 1940's and their whereabouts are now lost.

Kaulbach's portrait of GDss Elizaveta Fedorovna in the Maple Room.



The photo was taken in 1914.

The sculpture behind the screen - is that the lifesize portrait of the infant Tatiana mentioned on the main site?

I find it rather peculiar! I wonder where it is now.
