A modern portrait of Ella:

Ha. That looks like a zombie apocalypse Ella. Kind of frightening actually.
Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies. - Groucho Marx

Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the wordless tune, and never stops at all. - Emily Dickinson

The last portrait I have posted of Ella could be the worst portrait Iíve seen of her.
Here is one of my favorite portrait of her:

Not beautiful but the body looked graceful in the linear curves.

Ugly? I think it is a very pretty statue - the features are quite alike. Of course that sort of "cul de Paris" COULD have been more decently modelled...
