** - i apologize for the angle & quality of a couple of these, but they're the best i could do :-[ 

notice she's wearing the tiara she wore for the coronation in hungary.
i don't know what the occasion this portrait may have been documenting, but it was definately not her wedding!!  :P

(**as far as i know, this painting has never been published (or exhibited), so unfortunately i don't know the artist)
It’s a really big surprise to see the Rengensburg portrait by Benczúr here.
Last week in the Sisi portraits topic (Empress Sissi & Family More Pics) somebody had sent two small details of the Regensburg Benczúr portrait, and she was looking for a reproduction of the whole painting. Here’s my answer:
"In 1898 Emperor Franz Joseph commissioned five portraits of Elisabeth for the former Empress' ladies in waiting. Two of them were painted by Gyula Benczúr. The one painted for Ida Ferenczy is to be found today in the Hungarian National Museum (Oil, canvas, 142 x 92,5 cm, inv. no. 1861), this is the FAMOUS ONE, which can be seen on the cover of Hamann's album, and on the cover of the Hungarian album mentioned above, too (now there are plans of a second edition).
Now it's not on display, but it will be one of the highlights of a new temporary exhibition "The Cult of Elisabeth" in Gödöllő. (Opening: 7th June). (…)
So, the second portrait by Benczúr was painted for Irma Sztáray (also in 1899). Now it's lost, but there are some historical photos of it, and there's a replica (presumably also by Benczúr himself) in the Thurn und Taxis Kunstsammlungen in Regensburg, Germany. (oil, canvas, 138 x 94 cm, inv. no.: St.E. 492.) It was on display in the exhibition "Bavaria - Germania - Europa, Geschichte auf Bayerisch" in the Haus der Bayerischen Geschichte in Augsburg in 2000 (cat. no. 6.48.). The small colour detail posted before is from the official website of this exhibition. There's a photo showing the complete painting is colour on the website as well, but I was unable to download it. The BW detail posted before seems to be detail of the original painting.
(And there's a third portrait of Benczúr: a full length one showing E in the same dress with a dog - it was burnt during the WW II)."
The portrait painted for Countess Sztáray
The first portrait is something I'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE
It's a really strange one, the hair and the dress (and also the painting itself) suggests that it was made (or it shows Elisabeth) in the 1890s, but the dress is WHITE  ???. I think this is one of the strange 1890s/posthumous "compilations"  ;D

Yes I think so. The small statue seemed to be in the right place too.  ;)

And there's the famous portrait of the engaged couple, too...
And the statue indeed... (A small porcelain version of the one made by Hermann Klotz for the Elisabeth Memorial Church in Bp in 1907)...

I've just discovered an other statue of Elisabeth in the Th&T Collections: on the right you can see a small version of the Gödöllő monument by József Róna!
Are there more photos showing the original state of the collection?

The Benczúr portrait has arrived to Gödöllő. It's still wrapped to bubble-wrap, but it's good to see it again.  :)
