Yes, it was a biography of Peter the Great by Giancarlo Buzzi, it's mostly pictures and it's from the late 1960s. I no longer have library access to the book, but I did find the image of Anna P that I was seeking awhile ago online-so my question's answered, although maybe I should have looked more online for the picture before even posting this thread.

Yes, I believe he was from Italy, but the book was in English.

Anna and Elizabeth as children.

I know a family portrait exists. I have seen a portrait of Peter, his second wife Catherine, these two girls, Alexei and the baby son Peter, but cannot find it now.

Attention:  "RomanovsFan4Ever"  :   I do not know the source of the portrait of Alexander I in your  Reply #25, but it has been reversed.  The Ribband of the Order of Saint Andrew goes over the RIGHT shoulder and the Star of the Order should be on the LEFT side.  Also your "banner" shows a reversal on the bust prortait of Alexander II.    Regards, AP

Yes Aleksandr Pavlovich, you are right, about the portrait of Alexander I, I have noticed that it has been reversed, unfortunately I have found just reversed versions of it, please take a look here: http://www.nobility-association.com/Alexander_I_of_Russia.PNG
