Uncle Ernst painted this in 1968. He was 66 and dying. I was 8 and growing. His favourite colour was blue. My favourite colour was blue. We both liked scnitzel. His work was being hung in museums – mine on refrigerators. Are you starting to see the parallels? This brilliant piece would later be picked up by IKEA, turned into a poster, and sold to millions. I buy a lot of frames from IKEA. Do the math.
