I already posted this in the "auction" thread, but since this also deals with the Alexander Palace interiors, I am putting it here too:


Paul Gilbert on an upcoming auction of Romanov and Russian items:

http://www.angelfire.com/pa/ImperialRussian/news/488news.html

An auction at Olivier Coutau-B├ęgarie in Paris, will offer more than 400 lots on June 18th, 2012. A rare set of 48 colour polychrome plates of the Alexander Palace interiors (circa 1914) and 25 photographs of Emperor Alexander III and Empress Maria Feodorovna visiting Denmark are among the Romanov treasures offered in this wonderful collection.

You can download, view and print a copy of the 123-page catalogue at the following link;

I would love to see a higher quality version of the photo of Maria and Anastasia's bedroom shown on pg 26 of the catalog -- do you know whether it has been published elsewhere?

Oh wow! I too would like to see better copies of all of those interior shots.

Maria and Anastasia's room looks so much larger in that photo than in the watercolor and photos we have, probably because all of those screens make it seem so cluttered.

Sarushka, the photo is not of M&A's bedroom but the playroom. I have a full page of it, im if you want copy.

I dont think anyone knows what has happened to the Alexander Palace furniture and if it will ever come back. Judging by the time it took them to start renovations, the gathering together of what belongs rightfully in the AP is going to take years, and will be the next "struggle" for this most beautiful palace in Russia. Possession is nine tenths of the law as they say !! And everything is now in the possession of Pavlovsk, The Catherine Palace, and The WP in St Petersburg.

Above is a still image of the first floor corridor of the Alexander Palace's west wing, looking north toward the main entrance.  I captured it from a Saint Petersburg television station newscast about the opening of the newly restored Parade rooms on February 17, 2010.  I believe the camera man is standing in the Blue Drawing Room.

I just moved to St. Petersburg two weeks ago and have been twice to Tsarskoe Selo since. I plan to go about once a week as possible, so if there is a special request to see a photograph of something, I will consider doing so if I can manage. :)

The children's floor was currently closed, but I did manage some pictures downstairs in the private wing and portrait hall, and grounds. It rained on one occasion so most of my pictures are from the nicer day. ;) Sorry, links to my Facebook photographs are the best I can do to share them with you:

Ignore me, but full front lol

Hard to read, I know, but this is a schedule of when Alexei, Anastasia, Maria, and Tatiana had lessons in 1916-17:

Also, the hospital, quite sad to see it like this. Recognize the stairs?

And what is this thing? The monastery? They're renovating it :)

I have NEVER seen a picture of the doors leading from the foyer to the first floor corridor.  Thank you ever so much for that, as well as for the rest of these neat photos!

Thank you! That's exciting that you're now living in St. Petersburg. I love seeing photos of the nooks and crannies of the AP that most people don't take photos of, like your photo taken in the vestibule.

Question ... This is the Alexander Palace and this stroller is the Empress?

Вопрос ... Это Александровский дворец и это коляска именно Государыни Императрицы ?

No. If you translate the page, you will see the photo dated 1942.  The picture is a German Soldier in a wheelchair, outside the Alexander Palace, which was a German hospital at the time.
It is a MAN, not the Empress. LOL.

Императрица

Я не видел коляску обитую таким материалам в полевом госпитале ... ? Хотя возможно вермахт мог себе это позволить ...

I have not seen such a stroller padded material in a field hospital ... ? Although it is possible the Wehrmacht could not afford it ...
