  • Catalogue Essay

    Hundertwasser had sixty-nine unique tapestries made by a few weavers. When transforming his works into a tapestry, his main concern was to do this freehand, without a template, so the weaver was open to artistic interpretation and "life could be breathed into the object" and not be just a copy of the model.
    In this painting he set out to prove that "the dwelling cells in high-rises can be individually varied and humane and positive...so that a person can already see where he lives from the outside" - Friedensreich Hundertwasser and the Fight Against the Straight Line
