In the 1920s Klee started to spray paint onto the surface of his work with an atomiser. In 1927, he used this technique to make a number of works which depicted landscapes or figures. This technical innovation resulted in hazy, atmospheric backgrounds over which Klee would paint his subject. This landscape shows his interest in architectural forms rendered in a mysterious fairy-tale setting.
