St Petersburg Catherine Palace-portraits

This is Catherine II in paper mache.

I believe this is Elizabeth I. They had their hair powdered.  Catherins II aka Sophie had a very long face with poited chin.

Catherine II again-the paper mache was modeled after this portrait. 

Here's Elizabeth I daughter of Peter I (the Great) without powder in her hair.  They were all fairly large people.

Probably Sophie/Catherine II.

Self portrait in baroque.

Couple portrait in baroque.
