FRIEDENSREICH HUNDERTWASSER, 1959, watercolour
Friedensreich Hundertwasser was both an architect and a painter. He built his Hundertwasser Village in Vienna and allowed for his painting style to be influenced by Jugendstil. He was a green artist who painted a different world in an ironic and environmentally conscious manner. The creation of Der Fruchtsame Berg Der Traurige Berg coincides with his manifesto on ‘window rights’. His ‘formwork’ manifesto against monotonous architecture explains how cows should be able to pasture on glass rooftops. His art is an ecological and critical product of an extraordinary person.
