That's Misha's tutor Charles Heath.
I posted this picture some time ago, and one more - with Ferdinand Thormeyer.

I suspect that what Mikhail is sitting on in the top left-hand picture is a chinning bar. He must have been pretty agile (and fit!) to get up there.

Wonderful pictures, Ally! Is there any bigger version?

Beautiful Natasha Brasova with sweet little Georgie Mikhailovich (100% cute^^) - picture taken at Knebworth/England, during the Summer 1914, just before the outbreak of war and their return with Michael to Russia.

What a pity.
But I hope one day we'll find it.;-)

Michael with Dmitri Abrikosov, Russian diplomat, who was one of Natasha's admirers, when they both were young.
Picture taken at Gatchina. Abrikosov was a frequent guest at the home of Michael and Natasha and he became Misha's close friend.
