This drawing is part of a series Van Lieshout made in early 2020 at a time when the farmers in Holland were protesting against 'climate' measures by the government. The topic of 'farmers' relates both to the artist's childhood growing up in a rural area full and to his interest in renowned Dutch painter René Daniels. Daniels was himself inspired by paintings from René Magritte's 'période vache', and this collage by Van Lieshout is based on Magritte's painting 'La Crime du Pape' (1948) from this same period. In 1948 Magritte made a group of paintings and gouaches distinctly different from the rest of his work. Relying on a new, fast and aggressive style of painting – and particularly inspired by popular sources such as caricatures and comics, but also interspersing his works with stylistic quotations from artists like James Ensor or Henri Matisse.
