This painting was inspired by the description of an apartment trashed by the Nazis on Kristallnacht, the subject of a previously unpublished short story by Lotte Munz, 'The Portrait' which I came across in the Wiener Library in London. The painting was subsequently used as the cover illustration for the book "From the Edge of the World" (ed. Anne Joseph, Lotte's granddaughter) a collection of memoirs by Jewish refugees, which includes some of Lotte's evocative writing. (publ. Vallentine Mitchell, London) .
