Jen, I must say that Hungarian old press is full of wonderful surprises and jewels!! :-)

Alice of Hesse posted a photo of this superb painting time ago (in the fourth part of the thread), but after a long time I finally could get a better verssion of it. I enlarged it the most I could without damaging it. I adore this portrait!!! (X_X)


A commemorative millenium card. Is funny to see that Sissi is always portrayed young despite the time that has passed, FJ looks more than her father than actually than her husband!! :-S

I definitely think I'll have a look through there then!

That is a beautiful painting and one I have never seen before! It's a superb painting and certainly catches her beauty.

Isn't it just? I wonder why that was done?

I found a new portrait of  Sissi, it comes from the Italian forum Sissi-Ludwig. I adore the embroidery of her dress!!! (X_X)



Here bigger!!!

And an old print, this time in German old press. The empress visiting some hospital, I think. Enlarged by me.



Here bigger!!

The embroidery on the first one you posted is stunning!

And I love the young portrait of her too!

When was it painted Carolath? I must say that it is really beautiful but the girl portrayed on it doesn't look very much -to me, of course- like the still childish Sissi of her first portraits and photo (she looks much better!) Although I think that she has indeed a Wittelsbach look. I tend to think that it was made time after and the artist used his imagination for making it. Anyways a really lovely surprise, thank you!!! :-)

Oh that's a shame. I wonder how old she was though?

So she would have been around 20 years old or so when this was painted then?

Thank you very much for the information!!! So, it was made in a early date. I thought it portrayed a teenager Sissi (for her hair style, still down) but it is actually depicting a 20 year old Sissi, that's why she doesn't look as her late teen portraits, she was changing and growing into the legendary beauty that she was!!

She did look young in that portrait didn't she? Easy to mistake it for a teenage Sissi for sure!
