After a watercolour by the artist executed in 1964. In 1970, Marlborough Graphics planned a portfolio comprising lithographs after watercolors by Kokoschka. Together with the artist, 15 watercolors were selected to be printed by the workshop of Wolfensberger. However, they were never published as a portfolio but they were published instead as single editions printed over several years.
