This art print after the Hundertwasser's painting "IRINALAND OVER THE BALKANS" (oeuvre 691) is a premium 7-colour offset print on 250 g/sqm cast coated, high gloss paper. In further finishing steps gold glossy-foil is embossed and UV-varnish is applied partially.Three specialized companies in the area around Stuttgart are involved in this complicated manufacturing process.
The silver frame has a grey inner edge, the passe-partout is acid-free and the glass is a 2 mm thick scratch-resistant float glass. To prevent bending and waving because of fluctuations in temperature and humidity, the art print has been laminated on the back panel and the passe-partout has been glued on the art print. Furthermore the art print has been framed dust-proof. These production techniques have been applied to achieve a long lasting and optically perfect result.
Hundertwasser comment about the work:
"I wanted to paint a picture which seemed to dissolve and had lots of the Balkans in it. I was involved with a Bulgarian actress and went through real Casanova adventures, including hiding under the bed for hours, escaping out the window in my pyjamas, where the nearby florist completely sympathised with my plight and gave me food and lodging for nothing. And then a leap to the side to avoid being run over by a speeding rival who had been lying in wait for me in his car."
