In the Exhibition "Im Glanz der Zaren" in Stuttgart is a quote, by a court member, who says how cute and hearty Olga was with children.
Olga loved her niece (and problem child) Wera like her own, and also Weras twins were very close to her.
At the mentioned exhibition is a picture which shows Olga, after Karls death, hand in hand with her "granddaughter" Olga, Elsa stands behind them.
They were a sunbeam for her last years.

I found this as Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna by Christina Robertson, but I'm not sure the sitter was correctly identified; to me, she looks a little young to be Olga in 1846.  What do you all think?

Olga Nikolaevna.  I wish it were bigger so I could make out the artist's name...

Miniature of Olga Nikolaevna.  I see a bit of a resemblance to her aunt Anna Pavlovna here.  From Réunion des Musées Nationaux Grand Palais.

Thanks for sharing this, Joanna--it's the first time I've ever heard of a possible match between Olga and Ernst of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

Olga Nikolaevna.  I wish it were bigger so I could make out the artist's name...

The artist is Pyotr Zakharovich Zakharov-Chechenets; 1816–1846.  This painting is in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.
