I only know that the old lady in black (sitting second from right) is Countess Ekaterina Tizengausen, who supposedly was a lover of King Friedrich Wilhelm III and a mother of Felix Elston (1828-76), father of Felix-senior, husband of Zenaida.

Found this picture of Princess Zenaida and her husband Felix on a site. It's from the 1903 ball, but I had never seen this image before.



In attempting to make it a little bigger, I also made it not as good : (

Here's the link to where I found it. Maybe someone knows how to expand it without hurting it's quality.

y'know, if i haven't mentioned it before, i have to say:  ashanti01, you are an absolutely amazing foto-archaeologist!!   
or, if you prefer, image-detective / image-archaeologist.    either way, you're amazing :-)



personally, i think the better title is image-archaeologist.    detectives, generally, follow a string of clues from a starting point provided by others.     archaeologists follow strings of clues as well, but rely heavily on intuition & hunches (based on experience) to find a place to start looking.


whatever the case may be, you are, without a doubt, a treasure-hunter with "the golden touch"!


as ever, thank you very, very much!

Dude, you made me blush!!!! :-[

But thank you, for the wonderful compliment. I'm just like other's who are captivated the Yussupov's and their world. I must say that you have posted several rare pictures yourself as well as Svetabel and Taksa.

A larger version of Zinaida Yussopova that Ortino posted:



She has this almost ethereal beauty to her, very much in her eyes.
"...I am in Tatiana's room...Olga and Tatiana are here. I am sitting and digging in my nose with my left hand... Olga wanted to slap me but I ran away from her swinish hand..."
-Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanova, May 8th, 1913

Very nice! You have a date for it? It hasn't been posted before in this thread but there is another picture I believe was taken at that time with Zenaida and Felix.

I think this has to be my favorite portrait of Zenaida. Where did you find it Brian? I mean the large version, cause I've only seen a small version of it.

Isn't there a copy or smaller copy of this painting hanging in Zenaida's bedroom in the Moika palace today?
