Furthermore, the room is dominated by a very large Altar piece, a painting of the Virgin Mary & child and the supporting saints St. John Nepomuk and St. Martin. The picture was painted by Johann Josef Kauffmann (1707-1782) from the Bregenzerwald. He was the father of the famous artist Angelika Kauffmann (1741-1807).
In the window alcove is a picture of St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen, dated 1914, by Florus Scheel (the Elder) who was a founder of the museum. St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen (1577-1622), the ‘unofficial’ patron saint of Feldkirch was a Capuchin monk and for several years guardian of the Capuchin monastery in Feldkirch. During the turmoil of the religious wars in Graubünden, southern Switzerland, Fidelis was murdered in Seewis/Prätigau. To this day, he is very much honoured in Feldkirch.
