A scene in a Viennese coffee house in Girardigasse, near the Naschmarkt. In the background are Walter Navratil and Franz Ringel, in front of them stands the graphic artist Gerri Zotter, and at the table in the foreground sits Otto Breicha (1932–2003), eating his soup and looking into the camera. The German scholar and art historian was an early apologist of photography, who also took numerous portraits himself. As a museum director in Salzburg he built up an Austrian photo collection from 1980. Cora Pongracz took the image in the course of her work on the photo book »Martha Jungwirth – Franz Ringel«, in which she circles the living and working environment of the two artists.
