Hundertwasser comment about the work:

I tried out a new kind of perspective and asigned people to various storeys. To me the construction and walls are not the most important things, but the windows behind which people live. The building constists of windows, it is composed to them. If the windows are right, the building is right. When you build a house, you must start with the windows, for they are the bridge between inside and outside. Just as the first skin is penetrated by pores, the third is by windows. The eyes are the equivalent of windows. Eyes and windows have a unique correlation. (from: Hundertwasser Architecture, Cologne, 1997, p. 16)

This painting went into the possession of Galerie Paul Facchetti in February, 1954, for the exhibit expenses, together with the paintings 169 and 170.
