I am glad Dorian's portrait is comming back. it's been a very long time. She did it i beleive right when she bought La Boulie, well the Saybrooke mansion at the time. I do not beleive she had one in her old penthouses. She wanted something for the grand staircase that Joey Buchanan built her, (while sleeping with her on the side.)  

 

I know Nancy Pickerton had a portrait done because it was during the whole storyline of Dorian taking down Viki's mother's and putting her own up when she moved into Llanfair. Then when Dorian was recast, they took it down and never replaced it.

I think it's neat that Eddie Alderson was one of the ones who helped save it for her.

LOL, you took the words right out of my mouth.  She's said numerous times on the Hotline that she adores Judge Judy, but I don't know why she was Tweeting her here.

 

Scotty, that picture is from an Imperial Court of New York auction that Robin hosted where she donated her Dorian portrait to be put up for bid.  I forget all of the details of the story, but long story short, she ended up buying it back.

 

When Robin returned to OLTL the last time, it was actually her choice not to reinstate the portrait.  She felt that she had aged and wasn't really looking like her painted likeness.

 

BKuzak, the portrait was a gift from Cassie to her mother for her new home.

Thanks...I was wondering about that.  But wasn't the portrait there during Robin's last stint though?  Because I remember seeing it in the ABC MediaNet photos for the Grey's Garden episode OLTL did a few years back.

Yes, the story goes that JFP said that they wouldn't be needing that portrait any longer when Robin left the show.  I don't remember if Robin took it with her then, or if it remained in the vaults and she reminded the show that the portrait "belonged" to her when she ultimately returned.  She may have brought it in for that Grey Gardens episode.  It may still be on YouTube, but Robin made a video at the OLTL studios where she showed the portrait and a framed, autographed copy of the People magazine cover when Susan Lucci won the Emmy.  She was advertising that both would be up for auction at the previously mentioned event.

Ok...I couldn't remember if it had been in other episodes the last go round or just that one.

I don't remember seeing it other than that episode. I think they probably whipped it out because it definitely makes sense for that episode.

 

Glad it's returning.

Yes.  They had a portrait of Todd, Blair, and Starr hanging in its place when Dorian first left, and then a rather non-descript painting of what, I can't even remember.  Dorian's portrait never hung above the staircase after 2000.

Here's a clip from 2010 with the nondescript painting of whatever the heck it is hanging at the top of the stairs.

Actually, there was a portrait of Claire Malis hanging in the Llanfair library when she played Dorian.

I'd thought that Viki would have put the portrait of Eugenia back up instead of hanging a painting of a German Longhaired Pointer in the Llanfair library.

 

I wonder if there was an onscreen explanation about Dorian's portrait coming down at Llanfair after Nancy Pinkerton left the show.  My mother used to quip at how the portrait of Cabot and Isabelle on Loving changed three and four times with all of the different actresses in the role of Isabelle.

Really?  Wow, I didn't know that.

In that episode you uploaded from 2003, the one with the fantasies, Dorian's portrait was up during the fantasy of everyone mourning Dorian. I guess Robin just agreed for it to be shown occasionally.

The amateur painting of Todd, Blair and Starr was always so bad.

LOL and then when Jack was born, Todd had him put in there too.
