Tatiana's Art Gallery - Winter Palace Portraits

This collection was inspired by the Russian Imperial Winter Palace and Ludwig II's Neuchwanstein Castle. When I went searching for portraits of people whom I imagined would be attending the lavish balls held at the Winter Palace, I came across the work of Franz Xavier Winterhalter. This German painter was the chief portrait painter of the imperial family and court of France. He also painted the Royal Families of England and Belgium and many aristocrats from Russia. This collection also contains the work of Karl Von Piloty who painted Ludgwig II, Neuchwanstein's builder.

There are 7 portraits in total including:

* Ludwig II
* Empress Elisabeth
* Empress Maria Alexandrovna
* Princess Tatyana Alexandrovna
* Emperor Franz Josef
* Emperor Napoleon III
* Mme Rimsky Korsakova

These portratis are all recolours of my mesh, Tatiana's Art Gallery - 300x450, which I have also included in the package for your convenience. Polycounts: Faces 12, Vertices 24. For other portraits that I have created for this mesh see Tatiana's Art Gallery.

I created this collection for my lot Tatiana's Winter Palace where the in-game pictures were taken.

You can find the co-ordinated walls at Tatiana's Walls - Winter Palace 1.

I hope that you enjoy them.
