An experimental start with the Art-Club Rotaprint portfolio in 1951

Hundertwasser's activities in printmaking had an unorthodox beginning, as his first printed art works were not created using one of the typical techniques such as silk screen, etching, woodcut or lithography but using a technique completely unusual for print making.
“Alfred Schmeller (Vice-President of the Art-Club, 1951/52 - editor's note) wanted to produce cheap graphic portfolios that anybody could afford. The painters Josef Mikl and Johann Fruhmann and I think Kurt Moldovan, too, also agreed to it”, Hundertwasser noted in his catalogue raisonné.
