Artwork provenance

image

We spent several days and were able to successfully locate the picture of the Russian painter, presented to Isabel II of Spain in 1860, inventoried in 1870 and never seen since then.

The Patrimonio National employees helped us to find the record for it and then we were allowed to actually visit underground storage vaults of Madrid Palacio Real to look at the painting.

It was very impressive.

And yes, this was a nice addition to our usual genealogical research work.
