Lisl Steiner’s `Homage to all Chimneysweeps`


The photographer Lisl Steiner celebrated her 77th birthday in WestLicht. In order to bring luck to all her guests the artist invited a number of chimneysweeps to the gallery. During this “Homage to all Chimneysweeps”, Lisl Steiner handed over her entire photographic archive to the Austrian National Library as a gift. As the climax of the official part of the evening, the pianist Paul Gulda played one of his own compositions as a surprise for Lisl Steiner’s birthday.
