Anna Maria Barbara Abesch
Abesch was the first professional reverse glass painter in Switzerland. More than 160 of her works (signed "ABVE") remain, and more than 120 other works are attributed to her.
Her paintings generally depict Biblical scenes or saints, executed after mostly French engravings. They were highly estimated even during her lifetime, and many remain in Swiss monasteries or private collections.
