Speaking at the opening of his special exhibition, "Being Human - an Attempt", on December 15, 2006, Wolfgang Lettl made the following remarks regarding the painting, "And Yet She Does Not Walk":
Don't expect me to tell you a lot about Goya's Marchesa de la Solana. I copied her because I liked her so much.
I am allowed to do so, right?
I released her from her brown portrait background; I moved her slightly off-centre, and placed her in an open landscape. No, not a beautiful scenery from the South, but rather a glimpse of the Po Valley with ugly industrial architecture, and above it all, in contrast to the proud Spaniard, three arrogant airheads in an impossible flying machine.
With freshly polished shoes, though.
