Few works are known by the self-taught artist Viskovatova. Choosing her for this portrait is intriguing, as Viskovatova was associated with revolutionary groups hostile to the imperial family, one of whom would assassinate the Grand Duchess’s husband (Sergei) nine years later.

Sent as a birthday present by the Grand Duchess to Queen Victoria, 1896.
