At the Salzburg Festival 2009 there took place a four-week photo-portrait display by Irene Andessner in poster lightboxes throughout the city. The images were of photographic role portraits of four prominent Salzburg women from Mozart’s time, which Irene Andessner had produced in 1999 and shown in the Museum Carolino Augusteum (today’s Salzburg Museum); there was also a new role portrait of Irma Troll:
