Ingeborg STROBL, ein Garten (zum Beispiel) (2008). Vienna (Austria).
The title of this enamel work, which was executed in 2008, refers to previous names for Novaragasse (Garden Lane from 1797 to 1812 and Gardener's Lane until 1862). a garden (for example) is an artistic study of the fundamental changes that have occurred in the lane over the centuries and may also provide stimulating ideas for one's own garden.

The models used for the plant images are woodcuts from the nineteenth century, which in turn also allude to the Novara Expedition (1857-1859), the first large-scale scientific expedition of the Austrian navy.

Location: Novaragasse 8, 1020 Vienna (U2 Station Taborstraße)
A Cooperation with Vienna Public Transport Service.
