The Romanovs

In  Museum de Hermitage in Amsterdam I visited the exhibition "1917 Romanovs & Revolution. The end of a Monarchy". An interesting rural period for Russsia, exactly a century ago Tsar Nicolas II and his family were murdered after the outbreak of the Russian Revolution.
This is the Tsar with his only son and heir Alexander.

The exhibition started with a very special setup. You walked through a fashionable St Petersburg copied gallery. Art flourished there in the early twentieth century.

As these beautiful glassworks.

I loved those dresses.

Portrait of  Tsarina Alexandra Fyodorovna in 1907.

The writing desk of the Tsar.

Some toys of the children.

Dresses of the daughters of the Tsar and a velvet costume of the little Alexander.

And many photos.

  8. They were a good looking family and elegant times. When I see old photographs like these I can't help thinking about how terrified they must have been when they were murdered.

  12. It must have been a wonderful exhibition to visit - the sad death of the Romanov family is still shrouded in a certain amount of mystery.
