Allegorical portrait of Empress Elisabeth by ? (location unknown to gogm)

Empress Elisabeth is shown in a feminine, but very heroic pose with a figure to right holding the crown of Saint Stephen. It wound up in US custody at the end of World war II, being stored at Fort Knox, and was restored to the people of Hungary in 1978.

I cannot source this version of the image, but a similar image was posted to the Alexander palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by Veronica on 17 December 2006.
