Coronation Album of Alexander III
This is my favorite coronation album of al the Romanov Coronation albums. It is very rich in detail and color and gives a the reader a good sense of the awesome occasion. Richness in costume, fabric and historic places history lessons in themselves.
The reader is hypnotized by the grandeur displayed as if in a fairytale yet the illustrations are extraordinarily lifelike. Alexander was a giant of a man and his lively petite Danish wife Dagmar Maria , the new Tzarina, are easily found in the detailed miniatures. Detail is complete and almost photographic.
The viewer would do well to see the entire exhibit at Hillwood Museum.
