Beautiful portrait by Franz Hanfstaengl (sorry if I wrote it wrong, I'm not good with German)  :-[ Apparently it is labeled ca. 1900, so it's a posthumus portrait... it makes me to remember her well known photo session, I see that many artists were inspired to create new portraits with these photos!

Found this as Empress Sissi with a ridding companion, again it is dated ca. 1900

Both of those are beautiful! Do you know who painted the riding companion one?

Looks to me the riding companion is Bay Middleton. However, I do not know who was the painter. The scene more then likely is England or Ireland, could be Hungary, as he did come and hunt there. Have never seen this painting.

Well, here's the original caption in German that it had: Kaiserin Elisabeth mit Reitbegleiter (laut Dorotheum „im Park von Schloß Mirabell zu Salzburg“); Öl auf Leinwand, bezeichnet "L. Herday", I translated it at google and got this: Empress Elisabeth of riding companions (aloud Christie "in the park of Schloss Mirabell in Salzburg"), oil on canvas, inscribed "L. Herday"
So, the painter is L. Herday and she's actually in Austria, about the riding companion isn't mentioned his name, but the first that came to my mind after seeing this portrait was that the man is very possible to be indeed Bay Middleton -as aor well said-. In fact, it was also new to me, is quite nice to see something a bit different  :)

Just a thought...Is Bay Middleton related to Kate Middleton ?

I found this portrait of the empress in a russian forum. I have never seen it before. Who knows where it is today ? Perhaps in Prague? Who is the artist that painted it? Has someone a better picture of it?

Greetings

Alice you've impressed me a lot with this amazing portrait!!! WOW!!! (x_x) I think that perhaps was painted by George Raab, I found it very similar to this, but it's very possible that I'm wrong. I adore her dress!!! Thank you very much for sharing with us this jewel!!! I'm going to search for a better verssion, expect to have a bit of luck!!

I don't think that "Bay" and Kate Middleton are really related, I don't know nothing about his only legitimate daughter, if she can be among the ancestors of the actual Duchess of Cambridge :-?

By Einsle, not new but:
In color (ca. 1854)


The fullest I've seen (ca. 1856)

Maybe a great grand uncle. A distant cousin more likely.

Lovely images of Sisi.

Sissi bavarian family posessed any family connection to the romanovs?
