"The Beautiful Viennese" is an oil on canvas painting created by Millie Eva Wehn Baldwin. Beautiful Viennese is an image of a debutante or society lady much like Baldwin. The attention she pays to the woman's costume is telling. Debutantes usually wore white dresses; it signified the virginal nature of the young women.
