Very close dynastic relations existed between the House of Holstein-Gottorf-Oldenburg and the Russian tsarist family from the second half of the 18th century on and in the 19th century.
In cooperation with the Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Oldenburg (LMO), a scholarly companion volume to the LMO exhibition "The Four Unforgettables. The Tsarist House and the Oldenburg Court in the Time of Lavater and Tischbein" has been produced. The anthology was published to coincide with the opening of the exhibition at the beginning of October 2020 in the BKGE series of publications and focuses on the manifold interconnections of the noble families of the Oldenburgs, Württembergers and Romanovs in the 18th and 19th centuries, using the example of Duke Peter Friedrich Ludwig of Oldenburg and his descendants as well as the Empress of Russia, Maria Fedorovna, and Grand Duchess Ekaterina Pavlovna. In addition, the exchanges that took place between these figures and Lavater and the physiognomic portraits he made for Maria Fedorovna, which were shown for the first time at the exhibition in Oldenburg, play an important role.
