Crown Princess Stéphanie by Hans Makart (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Wien)

Stephanie's cuirasse has reached almost to the floor in this Makart glamour portrait that probably dates to around her 1881 marriage. There is no bodice and her sleeves are reduced to decorated caps. Her skirt is vey tight, limiting mobility.
