Joseph Reichlin (18721927)
Swiss Alpine Museum
Born in Arth in the canton of Schwyz as a farmer's son, Joseph Reichlin learned the art of terrain modelling in the Collège of St-Bernard in Troyes (France). During 8 years, he helped Simon Simon (18571925) finishing the model of the Bernese Oberland. After this, he created several models in different scales. For example the small model of the Jungfrau group in 1:50,000. He was among the first relief artists to create models of single mountains in large scale, for example the Aiguille Verte in a scale of 1:5,000.
