An Artist Found And Colored These Old Photos Of The Romanovs, The Last Russian Tsars.

The photographs are the privileged testimonies of the passage of time; without them, we would have no documented memory of the past, of the small and the great history. Over the past few decades, the great past we have all learned to study on dusty school books has been brought up to date with the latest technology, literally coloring the images of films and photographic documents of the past and bringing them back to life. and an incredible realism that never ceases to amaze us.

Olga Shirinova , the Russian colorist artist, brought to life some of the most fortunate figures of the aristocracy of the early 20th century Russian Empire by appropriating some old photographs depicting the opulent clothing of the Tsar Dynasty worn during special events: the grand ball, on the 290th anniversary of the Romanovs, who became the dominant dynasty of Russia.

On February 11, 1903, Tsar Nicholas II organized a big party at the Winter Palace on the occasion of this anniversary, followed two days later by a sumptuous and elegant costume ball in the city of St. Petersburg . For dance costumes, the aristocrats of the time (more than 400 guests) looted the Moscow armory of forty pieces of jewelry dating from the 17th century; the men wore richly decorated kaftans, boyar furs; the women wore dresses adorned with precious stones and hats covered with family jewels.

The Czars of the time were Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra, the last rulers of the Romanov dynasty in Russia before the upheavals of the 1914 revolution. Nicholas and Alexandra had four daughters: Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia, plus one son Alexei whom the royal family tried to hide from the society at the time, however, because he had a severe form of hemophilia which made him very weak.

Although the Romanovs were the last flame before the Revolution, their legacy is made even more alive by the splendid work of restoration and coloring of old photographs of Olga Shirinova, which takes us back some time, dreaming of the splendors of the great royal dynasties.
