Actually it was taken in Venice in 1862.

I love this picture. I don´t know from which artist it is. It looks like Klimt.

Hi Rani,

those pictures are amazing, especially the third one. It does seem a bit like a work of Gustav Klimt (or at any rate it is influenced by the Jugendstil) and depicts Elisabeth adoring (or contemplating) a statue of her "hero", Heinrich Heine. Where did you find it?

Cheers,

Ooh, I'd never seen that last picture before, thanks for posting! It does look Klimt-ish in style, I wonder if it is him or someone else...

I recently visited Gödöllö (Elisabeth's favourite palace in Hungary, near Budapest, now turned into museum) and noticed that there are lots of paintings and other pictures there which I hadn't seen anywhere else or in any books so far. Maybe because they're just in Hungary, they're not so well known. Unfortunately I don't have pictures of them, as you couldn't take photos in the museum and in the little time I had in the museum shop before it closed, I didn't find them there in any form. Maybe next time I go there I'll see if I can find reprints of any of them...

Thanks. it is nice to see Sisi doing some public duty for a change, she do dislike them.

Yes definetly ...

Sisi still young, still smiling slightly on the first picture (a characteristic common to Wittelsbach ?) :

Courtesy Rani, Reply 532:


Hello, this looks like a portrait of Europe's consorts.  I can see Tsarina Maria Alexandrovna in the back, Imperatrice Eugenie on the right and Empress Elizabeth in the center but who is the woman on the left?

Nice pictures, I am amazed about the new pics on Sisi! They're just great.
Concerning this one, does it also exist in bigger?
Rani, if you have more, you can also better post them on the thread of the Wittelsbachs! I would be pleased to see more of these there....

Yes, but there is a watermark from the ÖNB.
