PART II - Lost Portrait of Queen Victoria’s Granddaughters, the Princesses of Coburg

Since my blog post on the portrait of the Princesses of Coburg, Marlene Eilers Koenig confirmed that it is in Amorbach. The question of the date has now been identified by the Tsarskoe Selo Museum with F.A. von Kaulbach’s pastel of Queen Marie of Romania in their possession.

The painting may have been a gift for Duke Alfred and Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna in celebration of their Silver Wedding Anniversary held on January 23rd 1899 in Schloss Friedenstein, Gotha.
