It's in the middle of the XIX century, in the region of the Pays-d'Enhaut, that this craft art was born. Johann-Jakob Hauswirth (1809-1871) and Louis Saugy (1871-1953) were the two big masters. Der Postbote von Rougemont, Louis Saugy, der ein begabter Zeichner und Beobachter war, verkaufte mit 40 Jahren seine ersten Schnitte und wird schnell berühmt. Internationale Berühmtheiten besuchten ihn damals zu Hause in Rougemont. Sein Talent zeigt sich in lebensvollen und boshaften Kompositionen, die wahre Chroniken des Lebens im Pays d’Enhaut sind. Viele der Werke schmücken heute noch Häuser oder sind in den Händen erfahrener Sammler.
