The model of the year 1966 had come into being in times of a deep personal crisis; he had called the Yellow Houses additionally Jealousy. Closed windows, the girl’s face and tears: everything underlined the subject. This is still – years later – expressed by the title of the graphic.
The printers Dietz, accustomed to high precision and refined media, with the aim to produce facsimiles undistinguishable from the original, was able to reach a special quality of extraordinary kind in such direct cooperation. About the half of the 35 colour excerpts, which have to be created and printed over each other in a very complicated way, was left to the artist, the other half to the technician. Hundertwasser's part consisted of 10 creations on transparent foils. They had modern print machines at their disposal, extended possibilities, ideas, wishes with the amazing enthusiasm of inventors, and that was the way to get to special results. The colours led to certain effects. They are flashing up in darkness, and in un-illuminated rooms they create peculiar effects. By the stamping of a differently directed blind matrix “the metal cupolas are shining in a mysterious three-dimensionality.” One must have known the enthusiasm of the team at that time, to be able to comprehend, that the media got out of control somehow. It is undeniable that the invention of attractive printing events at least reached some borders of artistic expression. Nevertheless it does not have to be doubted that any time offers technical ways and offered in past. To find the borders has always been their task.
