This painting reflects the dry humour of Paul Klee, who is considered both a German and a Swiss painter. His work was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism, surrealism and cubism and, in addition, he was a student of orientalism. This is a perfect example of his mastering of colour theory, which he wrote about extensively and are even considered as important for modern art as Leonardo da Vinci's "A Treatise on Painting". This is just one example from his legacy, which comprises about 9,000 works of art. Klee's credo is epitomised by the words on his tombstone "I cannot be grasped in the here and now, For my dwelling place is as much among the dead, As the yet unborn, Slightly closer to the heart of creation than usual, But still not close enough".
