The works of Valentin Roschacher (*23.3.1960 Zurich) are characterized by a meticulous style of painting. He depicts the mountains of the Swiss Alps as hyper-realistic scenes. In order to achieve a high degree of precision, he paints his paintings using extremely fine brushes, also only a single hair brush to work with much detail. In recent years Roschacher has gained international attention and recognition as a painter of Alpine landscapes.

His work La Margna (am Silsersee) depicts the mountain in its wintry surroundings. The snow-covered motif radiates a certain coolness through the white-blue colouring, but at the same time also an almost magical beauty. The hyper-realistic style of the painting places the observer in the picture and the snow field in the foreground lends the painting depth that makes the mountain in the background appear majestic.
