*) Joseph Karl Stieler was the favourite painter of the art-loving king Ludwig I of Bavaria (1786-1868). Ludwig commissioned him to paint those women that the king considered beautiful - and that required morality (i.e., chastity) as one important component of their beauty. If an honourable citizens' daughter got picked, she received the dress she was painted in as a gift, which is why they appear dressed above their station.
