Identity of girl in picture?

The newest picture in the members's section shows Sergei Rachmaninoff with the Satin children. From left to right they are Natalie, Sergei R., Sophia, __?___, and Vladimir. Right?
Who is the girl to Sophia's right? I thought she might be Vera Skalon, but I believe Vera would be older. The girl appears in other pictures with the family also.

Op23#10--

The "girl" you refer to looks more like Natalia's and Sophia's mother, Varvara. And the young boy on the right closely resembles Mikhail Bakunin. If you still have Geoffrey Norris's book, check out the photo titled, "Hay-making at Ivanovka." Natalia, Varvara and Mikhail are wearing different clothes, but I think you'll agree who they are after comparing this photo with the one in Norris's book.

Cheers!

***Edit: The girl certainly looks too young to be Varvara Satina, but her facial features seem unmistakable.

Marianne, I am going to see if I can find that mystery girl in some other place, and get someone to scan it for you. It may take me a while, though, and it may be impossible to identify her. It was really a matter of curiousity. Thanks for trying.

I need my friends advice and soon will be back with the right answer!
