Pierre Gilliard. The Last Days of the Romanovs
On the hundredth anniversary of the Russian Revolution, the Hague Museum of Photography presents a unique series of insider photographs of Romanov family life, taken by the Swiss writer and academic Pierre Gilliard (1879-1962). As private tutor to the tsar’s children, he built up a close relationship with them over a period of thirteen years. His intimate, disarming and sometimes surprising pictures of boat trips and games show the still apparently carefree years before Russia’s last tsar met his fateful end.
