Portraits of Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna
Topic: Maria Pavlovna, Senior

These two portraits of the Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna are little known in the West, and therefore may be new to many people.

The artist, Emil Wiesel (1866-1943), also served as museum curator and a board member of the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg from 1914.

The above portraits of the Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna (nee Duchess Marie of Mecklenburg-Schwerin) were painted by Wiesel in 1900 (left), and 1910 (right). The grand duchess served as the last President of the Imperial Academy of Arts after the death of her husband, the Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich in 1909.

Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna's 1903 Costume Gown on Display
Topic: Maria Pavlovna, Senior

 

The gown worn by the Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna at the famous Costume Ball in the Winter Palace in February 1903, has gone on display for the very first time in St. Petersburg.

The gown is part of the Russian Style exhibit, at the State Museum of Russian History, located at the Peter and Paul Fortress.

The gown is a replica of a 17th-century Boyar's wife, made of red and gold brocade, and embroidered with pearls.

The costumes were designed to be worn at the historic ball, and then placed into storage of the House of Romanov. The head-strong grand duchess, however, decided to take her gown home. It remained at the Palace of the Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich on the Neva for many years.

After the Revolution the historic gown disappeared. It was later found and restored by local artisans.

The exhibition will run until December 31, 2011.
