Description

Catherine the Great 1760
*******************************
Sophie Friederike Auguste, Prinzessin (princess) von Anhalt-Zerbst (1729-1796), later Catherine II, became the Russian empress in 1762.
She was the daughter of an obscure German prince, Christian August von Anhalt-Zerbst, but she was related through her mother to the dukes of Holstein. At age 14 she was chosen to be the wife of Karl Ulrich, duke of Holstein-Gottorp, grandson of Peter the Great and heir to the throne of Russia as the grand duke Peter. In 1744 Catherine arrived in Russia, assumed the title of Grand Duchess Catherine Alekseyevna, and married her young cousin the following year.
Although a woman of little beauty, Catherine possessed considerable charm, a lively intelligence, and extraordinary energy.
Under her reign, Russia expanded its territories and modernized, following the lead of Western Europe. Catherine reformed the administration of Russian guberniyas, and many new cities and towns were founded on her orders. In the east, Russia started to colonize Alaska, establishing Russian America.

You can see here Catherine II together with the Great Imperial Crown. It was used by the Emperors of Russia until the monarchy's abolition in 1917, first in a coronation by Catherine II, and last used at the coronation of Nicholas II. It survived the subsequent revolution and a temporary sojourn in Ireland, and is currently on display in the Moscow Kremlin Armoury State Diamond Fund.

Alexei Petrovich Antropov (1716 -1795), who painted this impressing portrait, was a Russian painter active primarily in St. Petersburg, where he was born and died. He also worked in Moscow and frescoed churches in Kiev. His preferred medium was oil, but he also painted miniatures and icons.
