A portrait of Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna by Pyotr Neradovsky is now on display at the State Historical Museum in Moscow
Further to my article about The Romanov's: Portrait of a Dynasty (see below) which opened on September 3rd at the State Historical Museum in Moscow, I am happy to update it with this very interesting image.
The photograph is from the exhibit but it is the portrait on the far left that I would like to draw to your attention. It is a previously unknown portrait of the Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna, painted by the Russian artist Pyotr I. Neradovsky. It has been kept in storage for decades but as been specially restored for this exhibition.
Neradovsky (1875-1962) was a gifted artist, art historian and museum curator.
The other portraits in the photograph: Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna (top oval portrait), Emperor Nicholas II, and Grand Duke Michael Nicholayevich by other Russian artists.
