This black-and-white gouache untitled, painted in 1960, is an impressive example of Karl Otto Götz's characteristic style. The dynamic brush and squeegee sweeps abruptly and sharply change their direction. The diagonal arrangement of the picture and the arrow-like intensification of the formal structure are characteristic. The gouaches were often created as preliminary studies for the larger canvas works, but they have their own independent charm. For Götz they have "their own, typical expression ... The painting facture of the gouaches arises from the movement of the forearm, upper arm, shoulder. The painting tempo is much higher than on canvas. The rhythms therefore look somewhat different, i.e. they are tighter, faster."
