The Appenzeller Zeitung, May 28, 1888 stated: ‘…Ferner find ihm die Bildnisse der HH. Bundesräte Droz und Schenk übertragen, nebst anderweitigen Porträtirungen’. The implication is that their likenesses were ‘transferred’ to canvas. The reference must be to Numa Droz, Swiss politician, was born on January 27, 1844 and died December 15, 1899.  He was Swiss President in 1881 and 1887.
