A Gorgeous Christmas for the Romanov Children

When I was researching the prequel to Lilac Girls, Lost Roses, I came across this photo of the Tsar’s children many times, but then I stumbled upon this wonderful website and found it colored in such a natural way it came to life. Colorization is a slow and demanding process (in doing the Civil War research I’m working on now, I’ve found colorizing was insanely popular) and it is done so well here. (Black and white version below.)

 

I’ve included a few more colorized Romanov pics, below (especially love the one one of Tatiana with the Tsarina’s favorite lilacs.)  You can find them and more here: https://www.deviantart.com/missylynne/art/Romanov-Christmas-421963958
