La Reuchenette lies in a geologically interesting limestone gorge in the Jura-Mountains of Switzerland, near Biel/Bienne. Formerly the gorge was a place, where iron-ore was extracted and melted, but it never was an economically sustainable industry. The gorge was also used by tanners. Nowadays it is the site of a big limestone quarry and the production of cement.
This picture is drawn by Jacques-Henri Juillerat (1777-1860) and finished by Marie-Christine Mouillet (1802-1885) in 1861, one year after the death of Juillerat. She was his sister-in-law and his assistant.
