1885 Maria Feodorovna by Vladimir Makovsky (Gatchina Palace, Gatchina Russia)

Gatchina is essentially south of St. Petersburg, further south on the M-20 than Pushkin (Pushkin was formerly Tsarskoye Tselo).

Maria as the reigning Tsaritsa wears a luxurious Russian court dress with a purple train over a silver brocade skirt in this 1885 Makovsky portrait.
