Cabinet of Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna in the Winter Palace


The artist is Yushkov

The rooms of the Emperor’s daughters, rebuilt and updated in 1839 according to the project of Alexander Bryullov, were located on the ground floor of the northwestern risalite, on the so-called fourth spare half, and went to the Admiralty and the Neva. After the death of the Grand Duchess Alexandra Nikolaevna in 1844 and the marriage of Olga Nikolaevna in 1846, the rooms remained empty until 1855, until the Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolaevich the eldest resettled them in them. Apparently, this picture is an author’s repetition of the one that was intended to be sent to Stuttgart, the capital of Württemberg, where Olga Nikolaevna was supposed to move after a marriage with the prince of Württemberg Karl.
