Description:
Nikolai Dmitriyev-Orenburgsky (1837 - 1898)
Portrait of Emperor Alexander III
Oil on canvas, 1896
310 x 140 cm
State Historical Museum, Russia

Alexander III Alexandrovich (10 March 1845 1 November/2 November 1894) (Russian: III , Aleksandr III Aleksandrovich) reigned as Emperor of Russia 13 March 1881 until his death in 1894.
Alexander III was born in Saint Petersburg, the second son of Tsar Alexander II by his wife Princess Marie of Hesse and by Rhine. In disposition, he bore little resemblance to his soft-hearted, liberal father, and still less to his refined, philosophic, sentimental, chivalrous, yet cunning grand-uncle Alexander I, who coveted the title of "the first gentleman of Europe". Although an enthusiastic amateur musician and patron of the ballet, he was seen as lacking refinement and elegance. Indeed, he rather relished the idea of being of the same rough texture as the great majority of his subjects. His straightforward, abrupt manner savoured sometimes of gruffness, while his direct, unadorned method of expressing himself harmonized well with his rough-hewn, immobile features and somewhat sluggish movements. His education was not such as to soften these peculiarities. He was also noted for his immense physical strength, though the large boil on the left side of his nose caused him to be severely mocked by his contemporaries, hence why he always sat for photographs and portraits with the right side of his face most prominent.
