I made the above photomontage using photographs of beautiful mauve krokus flower watercolours painted by princess Marie in 1899. The flower is abundant in Romania and also in Coburg region during springtime. The exquisite flowers display the mauve/ purple colour so much loved by Marie and used in her drawings, interior decoration designs or cloth materials. Princess Marie took painting lessons with Mrs Mercier, whom she got in touch through her mother-in-law, Antonia de Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen in 1893. DM
I endeavor in the “Weekly Pictures” post series to bring to light worthy of note, often less known images from the royal past and present and thus further enhance the understanding of royal history and what it represents for us.
