Conceived in 1991, the title of this painting derives from Thornhill's serendipitous reading of When the World Was Whole, Three Centuries of Memories by Charles Fenyvesi, published in 1990. The book chronicles the author's Hungarian family's rise under the Hapsburgs, its fall in World War I and its near extinction under the Nazis.
