About the project

The connections between these artists are close and multifaceted: Lisel Salzer paints Hilde Spiel, with whom she experiences a love affair with two Belgians during a summer in St. Wolfgang, an incident that provides the template for Hilde Spiel’s novel Verwirrung am Wolfgangsee [Confusion at Lake Wolfgang]. Lisel Salzer also painted Lisl Weil’s family – the portraits are in the family’s estate in New York and are being shown to the public for the first time in the exhibition.
