Empress Alexandra Feodorovna of Russia by Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant (Azərbaycan Milli İncəsənət Muzeyi/National Art Museum of Azerbaijan - Bakı/Baku, Azerbaijan)

Tsaritsa Alexandra is shown smiling in this portrait, a rarity for her, as she plays with her long necklace.

From the lost gallery’s photostream on flickr; substantially filled in the shadows and, for the 1 October 2018 reposting of the same image, fixed the left and right sides of the upper edge. Also posted to Tsaritsa Alexandra Feodorovna’s Subalbum here.
