Photographic Journal: Beauty

These are photos of some of the original portraits of beautiful, young women from King Ludwig I of Bavaria’s collection “Gallery of Beauties” at the Nymphenburg Castle in Munich, Germany.  Helene Sedlmayr (in the larger photo), with her sweet, innocent face, has always been my favorite.

If interested, you can find the whole gallery here on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallery_of_Beauties
