Elizabeth Russia Portrait Painting miniature
* click on image for fullsize view
Item description: * See scan - absolutely perfect condition. This is a rare 19th century artist signed miniature painting over ivory with a full body portrait of Empress Elizabeth of Russia. The painting is signed by listed XIXth century artist "n. Sponsel". The piece comes with original bronze oval frame and glass and is completely intact. It is a relatively large work of art measuring 110mm x 90mm. Most likely the bronze frame was fitted into a larger palisander wood frame similar to ones made by Faberge for the Royal Family and Imperial Palace, but unfortunately the larger frame is missing. The original ormolu bronze frame had never been opened and there is still original dust around the edges. LIFETIME GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC!!! Scarce Imperial Russian Royal family related collector piece and one of the rare antique works of art and miniature oil paintings and portraits. Yelizaveta Petrovna (Russian: Елизаве́та (Елисаве́т) Петро́вна) (December 29, 1709 January 5, 1762 (New Style); December 18, 1709 December 25, 1761 (Old Style)), also known as Yelisavet and Elizabeth, was an Empress of Russia (1741 1762) who took the country into the War of Austrian Succession (1740 1748) and the Seven Years' War (1756 1763). Her domestic policies allowed the nobles to gain dominance in local government while shortening their terms of service to the state. She encouraged Lomonosov's establishment of the University of Moscow and Shuvalov's foundation of the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg. She also spent exorbitant sums of money on the grandiose baroque projects of her favourite architect, Bartolomeo Rastrelli, particularly in Peterhof and Tsarskoye Selo. The Winter Palace and the Smolny Cathedral remain the chief monuments of her reign in St Petersburg. Generally, she was one of the best loved Russian monarchs, because she did not allow Germans in the government and not one person was executed during her reign. Born in Moscow on Dec. 18, 1709, Elizabeth was the daughter of Peter I and Catherine Alekseyevna. Her education, emphasizing French, German, and the social graces, was designed to prepare her for marriage to a member of European royalty. However, all efforts to provide a suitable husband, including her father's attempt to arrange a marriage between her and Louis XV of France, failed. The beautiful and vivacious Elizabeth was forced to accept a life of spinsterhood but not one of chastity. Over the years she had many lovers, chief among them Alexis Razumovsky. Elizabeth spent the first 3 decades of her life in political obscurity during which time the Russian throne passed, after the death of Peter I, to a succession of her relatives: her mother, as Catherine I; a nephew, as Peter II; a cousin, as Empress Anna; and finally her young cousin Ivan VI, whose mother, Anna Leopoldovna, served as regent. That obscurity was lifted in 1741, when a movement began to remove the allegedly pro-German regent and her son Ivan VI and to install Elizabeth as empress. In November of that year, supported by Alexis Razumovsky, Elizabeth accepted the role of legitimate claimant to the throne. She led a detachment of guardsmen to seize the regent and her son and then dramatically proclaimed herself empress of Russia. An intellectually limited and sensual person, Elizabeth gave little attention to the day-to-day business of government. She was shrewd enough, however, to see the importance of some political matters, particularly those that personally concerned her. To protect her position, she dealt harshly with any who might become threats, among them the family of the former regent, whom she kept imprisoned. Although Elizabeth made neither domestic nor foreign policies, she influenced both through her choice of officials and her response to their counsel. Some notable domestic changes occurred during Elizabeth's reign. The number of Germans in the government was reduced. The privileges of the landed nobility were enhanced at the expense of the serfs. The process of Westernization was accelerated by the introduction of structural improvements in St. Petersburg; the opening of the first Russian university, in Moscow, in 1755; and the establishment of the Academy of Arts in 1757. Elizabeth took pride in the advance of her country as a great power during her 20 years as empress. In the latter part of her reign, when Russia was at war with Prussia, she followed the battle reports closely. With victory almost in sight, Empress Elizabeth died on Dec. 25, 1761.
