Hundertwasser comment about the work:
Begun as a fold-up watercolour in a tent on the nudist island of Koversada in Dalmatia; later made into a canvas picture. It was nice to paint in the tent, taking a dip in the sea from time to time, and now and then to see beautiful naked women go by. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 484)
