Hau's version of the Robertson portrait.

Yes, Eric, the monument shown above is still there.  The bust is based on a statue done by sculptor I.P. Vitali; it was destroyed during World War II.

Poor girl. She shouldn't have died so young. She was very promising.  :(

I love that picture of her.  It was originally done by Hau, but I've only seen a very small image of the colored version--her dress is white, and the flowers in her hair are blue.

It's lovely, Dru! And the child she's holding is her son William, right?

Yes, I would assume the child is her son, as an allegorical representation of Baby Jesus. 

What I like most about this painting is that she is looking straight at the viewer; it's the only one I've ever seen where her head isn't slightly turned.
