Notes
Ownership: The collection was owned by several generations of the descendants of Vasilii Andreevich Zhukovskii (1783-1852). Zhukovskii’s daughter Aleksandra Vasilevna Zhukovskaia (1844-1899) married with Grand Duke Aleksei Aleksandrovich of Russia (1850-1908). Their son Aleksei Alekseevich (1871-1932) was created a Count of the Russian Empire with the name of Belevskii-Zhukovskii by Tsar Alexander III on March 21, 1884. More than half of the material belonged to Aleksei Alekseevich’s first wife Princess Maria Petrovna Trubetskaia (1872-1954) who became the first Countess Belevskaia-Zhukovskaia.
