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.

I love the realism style of art. I have alot of Victorean style homes and these would go great in them thank you.

Also the woman with the long hair down the front looks like me. Kinda strange :O

Thank you everyone. I am delighted to be able to share these with you.

I don't know too much about Elisabeth of Austria, Kakumei Kochou, except that she has a wonderful portrait. I will have to investigate her further.

You're lucky to look like Mme Rimsky Korsakova, DeadMetalSimmer, she's one of my favourites!

I'll have to finish my Sissi now that you've made these wonderful portraits! I always remember Romi Schneider playing her in the German television show and have been working on a version of the Hofburg and her home in Bavaria! I can't wait to skin her Dirndl! You've inspired me.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Those look fantastic! I recently went to Russia and toured the Winter Palace, and the portraits you made look exactly like the ones in the real place!

I downloaded these a while ago, but when I tried to extract them, I got a CRC error on the archive.

So I re-downloaded them, and tried to extract them. Result: CRC error.

What the bleep is going on here? Has anyone else had any trouble with these?
