Before clearing her tea setting, the butler reminds the Countess that dinner will be served in exactly forty-five minutes.  The observant visitor will have noticed many details in and around this area of the layout painted in red and yellow, the national colors of the Grand Duchy of Baden.  I intentionally painted the ball that has bounced into the pond in those colors; the fish, however, were created by Mother Nature to feel most ”at home” in the dear old Grand Duchy. At the right edge of the photograph is a converted American pewter figure that represents an early Gaston Lachaise bronze sculpture.

The “Sarajevo 1914 Collection”, begun in 1979, has been and continues to be assembled
in partnership with Ingrid Bitter, Director MC W. Schueler, Stuttgart
