About this piece, the seventh of the portfolio Hundertwasser's Regentag, you can say without any exaggeration, that it belongs to the most expressive and impressive ones within Hundertwasser's graphic oeuvre. The portrait of a woman merged in an abundance of associations, whose weird beauty fascinates on one hand and touches on the other hand, is shaped by stripes resulting from the fundamental spiral.
Günter Dietz achieved something very special to reach the effect of a painted picture, to even surpass it. He increased the colourexcerpts, which have to be printed together in a very precise way, to a number of 29 sieves. He printed different metalstamps and two phosphorous colours flashing up inside mouth and eyes in darkness. The model had been painted with eggtempera and oilcolours on a base of crayoned foil of aluminum, and the silkcut, for which the artist had painted nine new transparent foils for the sieves, enabled to increase this artistic intention.
The way the painting was created in November 1969 in Rome, where Hundertwasser was close to the Bulgaric actress Irina Maleewa to who he dedicated this vision of a memory, the way the graphic had grown more than that to a timeless picture of yearning and love, to the eternal in its transitory.
