I've seen this picture in one book before, but never so large and in such good quality. Thanks for posting it! ;-)

It´s a wonderful portrait!! Please, if anyone have the full portrait in colour...it would be nice to see it here!!

By the way, Rani...I suppose you read easily german and you have read the book with the beautiful cover? I really wish to know more about the grand duchess, but I can´t find a bio wrotte in english or french, neither a translation to spanish  :-[

There is a book on the work of Winterhalter who was active at the same time, perhaps a little later.  There may be a portrait such as you seek in the work of Winterhalter.  There was also not too long ago an exposition at the Musée Galliera in Paris of clothing of the era of Sisi, with a mannequin wearing an example of one of her(Sisi's) grandes tenues of mounring, complete with face mask.  Very impressive.
