Was she sitting in this photo or...?

Amalia was not very tall.. On the contrary, her husband Adalbert was a giant, according to their pics

The wedding of Adalbert and Amalia:



And I believe Remi is right...the portrait shows clearly that Adalbert was a giant!!

The marriage took place in Madrid in 1856.

But they went back to Munich no ? Like there is a few versions of Winterhalter's Sisi painting, one in Buckingham Palace. Maybe one version in Munich one in Spain ?

I don't know. On the left top of the painting is a signature, but even with zoom I can't read it.
Sorry.
