Emperor Nicholas II portrait discovered on back side of Vladimir Lenin canvas

ST PETERSBURG, RUSSIA - DECEMBER 1, 2016: A full size portrait of Russia's last Emperor Nicholas II on display at the Museum of Applied Arts of the Stieglitz Art and Industry Academy. The painting (1896) by Ilya Galkin has been recently discovered on the back side of the canvas used for a portrait of the Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin by Vladislav Izmailovich (1924). Primary School No. 206 has asked to restore the Bolshevik leader portrait that was ripped at the bottom. When Stieglitz Academy restorers took the painting out of the frame, they saw that the back of the canvas was covered with black water soluble paint. Beneath the paint they found a well preserved portrait of Czar Nicholas II. Alexander Demianchuk/TASS (Photo by Alexander Demianchuk\TASS via Getty Images)
