Hundertwasser's comment on the work

On the way to Paris I painted the red trams of Vienna, the blue trams of Munich and the yellow trams of Stuttgart as if they moved around together in one city. Later I gave the picture to Gianni Dova in exchange for one of his pictures, but I never got it. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 244)
