The youngest child of Russian Emperor Olexandr III and Empress Maria Fedorivna. Through her mother Olga was connected almost with all royal families of Europe. Olga was professionally engaged in painting and her teachers were V. Makovsky, S. Zhukovskyi and S. Vynogradov. In the 1900Хs the Grand Duchess used to arrange the art vernissages in the Gatchyna Palace. Money received from the sale of the art works were spent for charitable purposes. In 1912 she founded the "Society of providing aid for the needy artists in memory of the academician Kryzhytskyi." During the First World War at her own expense she equipped a hospital in Kyiv, in which she served as a nurse. In order to raise funds for the Red Cross the reproductions of her works were printed on postcards, along with the works of the famous artists of that time. One of the favorite techniques of the Grand Duchess was watercolor. Since 1930 she had settled in the town of Ballerup (Denmark). In 1934 the exhibition of the artistХs works in Copenhagen was a great success. In 1936 the paintings of the Grand Duchess were exhibited in the Agnew Gallery in London at a charity exhibition. All her works had been purchased within two days and the buyers were the royal families of Great Britain and Norway, Baron E. de Rothschild, W. Churchill and others. Her works were exhibited in St. Petersburg, London, Copenhagen, Toronto, Sweden, and Germany. The static exhibition of the artistХs works is open in the museum of Ballerup. In 2007 the exhibition of the paintings of her "Highness Artist" was held in the State Tretyakov Gallery dedicated to the 125th anniversary of her birth.
