This is the way I imagine Elise, the muse of the song Fur Elise, the woman who inspired Ludwig van Beethoven, a young beautiful woman white soft skin, big brown eyes and long brown curly hair Everytime I listen to Fur Elise I almost can see Elise laying on a white silk bed with white roses around her. Every time I listen to this song the bright pure white image of Elise comes to my mind and all I wish is to be with her,feel her delicate body and touch her white soft skin
This is my watercolor painting of Elisse, the way I imagine her when I listen to Bethoven's song Fur Elisse, a beautiful young woman with long curly brown hair and brown eyes, wearing white underwear, standing on a white silk bed, with white lilies and roses around her, I see her on the white bed. Everything is white around her, pure bright white, a symbol of her innocence. She is so delicate beautiful young and pure like a white flower. It is not clear who was Elisse but this is the way the song makes me imagine her.
Beethoven scholars and critics are not entirely certain who "Elise" was. The most reasonable theory is that Beethoven originally titled his work "Für Therese", Therese being Therese Malfatti von Rohrenbach zu Dezza (1792-1851), whom Beethoven intended to marry in 1810. However, she declined Beethoven's proposal. In 1816 Therese Malfatti, who was the daughter of the Viennese merchant Jacob Malfatti von Rohrenbach (1769-1829), married the Austrian nobleman and state official Wilhelm von Droßdik (1771-1859). When the work was published in 1865, the discoverer of the piece Ludwig Nohl mistranscribed the title as "Für Elise". The autograph is lost
