newfan, try googling this:  http://www.dugward.ru/library/olga_nick.html
If you don't read Russian, you can probably get a (very) rough translation using the Google or Babelfish translators.

The original of the last portait posted by katmaxoz can be found in the Kadriog palace in Tallin (Estonia). There are also portaits of other daughtes of Nikolay I because the family often visited the palace. I posted their portraits in the appopriate threads concerning Nikolay I`s daughtes.
