Hundertwasser's comment on the work

"When you mix architecture with love, you get box houses-of-cards with yellow hot-water-bottle windows. In every window a blue tear. The red tower is located at Vienna's West Train Station. Near it is where she lived. Plattensteiner, my astrologer, said I should paint a lot when I am unhappily in love, especially then. Later I would not get around to it. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 507)"
