Photographer's Note

The huge Moika Palace can be divided in two level, usually the upper part was the kingdom of women and the lower level was the area used by men.
Here we can see a masculine hall adorned with this precious fireplace, a copy of an Italian one. Pay attention in the frame of the circular part and you will see a mask of an old lady above and her version as a young lady bellow.
The last Yusupov prince said once living in this palace was like living inside a museum and when he got married he decided to use part of the palace as his house, a simple home.
There is a curious history about this prince, his mother had a son and she was disappointed when he was born, because she wants a girl. Because this she dressed the boy as a girl during seven years or so and even as a teen he liked to be dressed as a lady and once he escaped from the palace and with no money he went to a rich restaurant of the city, dressed as a girl and had lots of fun because the gentlemen in the restaurant became to flirt with him but they had no idea who were that girl. Some time after his brother died in a duel and he became the only heir of the fortune.
After that he studied in UK, got married, helped friends to kill Rasputin, was punished by that, came back home and hid the treasures of family, escaped from the revolution taking with him the most precious paintings of the house, living abroad with this money. After that he prosecuted an Hollywood studio and won and died in Paris.

O Pal醕io Moika pode ser dividido em dois n韛eis, o superior era o reino feminino enquanto o t閞reo era a 醨ea ocupada pelos homens.
Vemos aqui uma das salas usadas pelos homens da casa, adornada com essa lareira que uma c髉ia de uma lareira de pal醕io italiana. Reparem na moldura que existe ao redor do c韗culo, em cima h uma m醩cara com uma velha senhora e em baixo a vers鉶 dela quando era jovem.
O 鷏timo pr韓cipe Yusupov dizia que viver nessa casa era como viver dentro de um museu e por conta disso, quando se casou, decidiu viver numa parte do pal醕io como se ela fosse uma casa comum.
Essa pr韓cipe teve uma vida muito curiosa. A sua m鉫 j havia tido um filho e quando ele nasceu ela ficou decepcionada, pois queria uma menina. Por conta disso ela trajou o filho como menina at aos sete anos mais ou menos. Depois, quando o rapaz era adolescente, fugiu do pal醕io trajado de mulher e foi a um restaurante chique da cidade, sem dinheiro algum. L se divertiu muito, pois v醨ios cavalheiros come鏰ram a flertar com ele sem saber quem era aquela misteriosa mo鏰. Poucos anos depois seu irm鉶 mais velho morreu num duelo e ele herdou toda a fortuna da fam韑ia.
Depois ele estudou na Inglaterra, se casou, ajudou a matar Rasputin tentando salvar a R鷖sia, foi castigado por isso, escondeu os tesouros da fam韑ia, escapou da revolu玢o levando os mais valiosos quadros da casa, viveu custa deles, processou e ganhou uma causa contra um est鷇io de Hollywood e morreu na Fran鏰.
