Olga and Alexandra Nikolaevna

Grand Duchesses Olga and Alexandra Nikolaevna by Christina Robertson, 1840 (Hermitage St. Petersburg) (cropped)

Last months I posted paintings by Christina Robertson of Alexandra and Olga Nikolaevna (Nikolaevna means daughter of Nicholas). Here we have a painting showing them both while making music. Notice the dog is also present again.

    1. I'd never heard of her either. I've looked her up when one of her paintings was part of an exhibition in the Amsterdam Hermitage (a dependance of the real Hermitage in St. Petersburg) in 2009. She was very talented, I really like her style.
