From the author:
The Dirndl and Breast Patch portraits were created as a tribute to the famous Swiss painter Josef Reinhard. He was known as a painter of traditional costumes and began his career in 1770.
Josef Reinhard lived and worked in the building that houses the ART1A gallery in Lucerne. That inspired me and so DIRNDL, the milkmaid, was born. She serves chocolate milk in the style of Swiss chocolate.
Both women wear original pieces of Lucerne traditional costumes. Because of the sensitivity of the fabrics, the photographs had to be taken with the greatest care. We thank the Lucerne Historical Museum for their trust.
