Reep painted this work the morning after many of his friends were killed by a German bomb while watching a movie in an underground theater. "I painted these men with dazed looks, and clouds up above that seemed to reach like a dragon, like in the Goya's Disasters of War. Everything seemed to be tragic, terrible, and meaningless."
