A small selection of Sisi paintings
Note on the Sisi picture in the Hermes villa in the study of Franz Joseph
Originally there was a portrait of Georg Raab at the place above the chimney, which Empress Elisabeth showed in riding costume. Since this painting has not been available for decades, the one with different copies, which were however all not satisfactory.
In 2006, the Wien Museum decided to present the famous Austrian artist Katrin Plavcak with a reinterpretation. Plavcak showes Sisi in a dreamlike Fantasy landscape, accompanied by animals she loved: dog and horse.
