Austrian artist with the special ability to capture his time. From the postmodernism Kokoschka represents scenes of Prague and Vienna during the twentieth century.
In the first picture the painter shows his feelings for the different Europe's politics. On the left side we can see Germany with the face of Hitler shouting. On the right, we have Mussolini's portrait. Up and down the red egg are located the U.K. and France, with a non-active position, just contemplating the egg while Germany and Italy try to eat it. The egg is a metaphor for Txecoslovaquia at the begining of the II World War. Kokoschka was in Prague those days and saw the bombs over the city and the desctruction that was overcoming Prague and other european cities: citizens were being killed, a thing that had only been seen before in Spain during the Civil War.
