    What does 'properly picturesque' mean in the sentence?

    'She was not interested in ecclesiastics of any kind although, since being in Italy, she admitted to a mild admiration for Cardinals whom she considered as at any rate properly picturesque.'

    She means that the cardinals [who have red robes] are visually attractive in a charming manner which is very suitable to Italy.
