Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna, by Pyotr Neradovsky, 1905

The last Tsar's younger sister at home, looking very elegant and retiring; she was neither. Rather, she was kind, very down to earth, and a talented artist herself - the sale of her watercolors would later help sustain her immediate family in exile.
