The painting has been created in the genre of post-expressionistic 'Neue Sachlichkeit' ('New Objectivity'). Saul Bolasni alienated this portrait by composing it with certain dashes of caricature. Otto Dix is well known for this special style of painting. A fundamental emotional expression is created that displays more than only a plain image of a person. Surrounded by a black frame with information to this recording, executed in restrained lettering, the design concentrates on the colors of this artistic masterpiece.
