Olga's Flowers

Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna -- the sister of Russia's martyred Tsar Nicholas II, and the daughter of Tsar Alexander III and Maria Feodorovna (Princess Dagmar of Denmark) -- was an accomplished and prolific artist.  After escaping the Bolsheviks, she and her husband lived for a time in Denmark and later in Ontario, Canada.  The floral water color above and other of her works can be found in the Ballerup Museum in Denmark.
