Hundertwasser comment about the work:

I photographed my pictures myself because I knew that the documentation of my works would be important. I had an old 6 × 9 Kodak camera, with 6 mm transparency film and a tripod. When everything was ready, with the sheet of paper lying on the ground in the garden of the Dumages' hunting lodge and the camera placed right over it for a vertical photograph from above, I ran in to get a tape measure. When I got back, the painting was gone. It was windy. I asked all the neighbours, but nobody had seen the piece of paper. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 180)

Carried off by the wind in St. Mandé 1955 while fetching the camera.
